Robert Thies, piano
Metaphor Two for solo piano was composed for Artistic Director Daniel Kepl for the 2005 Santa Barbara Chamber Music Festival when he needed one more short piece to fill out a program. It was premiered there by Meade Crane. Since the festival championed and performed only music by American composers I saw to it that the piece was American in character. “Metaphor Two” has since been used at contemplative services at All Saints Church, Pasadena.
