Piano Sonata #2 "The Last Resistance":

"My Second Piano Sonata 典he Last Resistance takes its title from Jacqueline Rose痴 collection of essays. This four movement work engages the spirit of the post 9/11 essays by portraying the prophecy of difficulty of times ahead in the first movement, a representation of post 9/11 Manhattan in the second, a lamentation in the third movement (擢reud Goes to Abu Ghraib); and a vicious finale featuring musical portraits of men and women in dark times."
