Composer's Notes: When I wrote Dreaming in Red, I imagined a ballerina dancing with sweeping elegance, or an Indian dancer swirling scarves all around her. The opening section contains descending and ascending octaves in a pentatonic scale, which gives the music a broad, exotic sound. The melody eventually becomes less modal, but it continues to climb up and down the keys. There are very few tempo changes in this piece; it just keeps drifting and flowing along until the very end, which gives it a zen/dream-like quality.
