Program note for Fidget
The word “fidget” calls to mind a wriggling, chair-rocking, pencil-tapping parade of images. While this piece features several musical motives inspired by some of those images, the central idea that unifies those motives and guides the trajectory of the composition is that a fidget is any functionless motion performed in an effort to relieve physical or psychological discomfort. The music consequently evolves gradually and with great effort from a very restless state to a more peaceful one.
