Mosaics is a work that is intended to represent two of the typical landscapes one encounters in the area of New England, and the emotions and experiences that accompany them. The first movement, Stained, is intended to be a prelude-like portrait of the classic, “idyllic,” small New England town. The second movement, Panelled, tackles the typical urban scene of cities like Boston or Providence, and acts as an expansion and commentary of melodies from Stained. Glass is a central thread running through the two movements, both in terms of “glassy” textures used in the ensemble and the movement titles, with Stained being a reference to the stained glass window of a church and Panelled being a reference to glass panelling of skyscrapers.
