Performance Notes

"Souvenirs" is a French title that translates to "Memories". With this music, I wanted to express the feeling of remembering a specific event in the past that had a great impact on your life. Based on Haitian rhythms, "Souvenirs" has a dancing feel to it, slow, reflective, and reassuring. The repetition of the main melody many times over the course of this piece is a way to imply that no matter what happens, some memories can never be replaced, and will always be cherished. The bright and happy feel of the dancing rhythms is a way to feel the comfort of those precious memories guiding us on our way towards a brighter future.
