George Perle comments on his Critical Moments

Critical Moments was commissioned by Chamber Music America for the New York New Music Ensemble and received its world premiere in a performance with David Gilbert conducting the NYNME in New York on April 14, 1997. These six short, very concentrated and intense movements for six players are scored for flute (doubling on piccolo), clarinet (doubling on E-flat and bass clarinets), violin, cello, piano, and percussion.

Performed May 6, 2002 (MCA)
