The premiere was at Paine Hall at Harvard on April 5th, 2013 by the Brattle Street Chamber Players.
Footrows is scored for 17 strings:
My freshman year, I was asked to write Footrows for Harvard's student-run conductor-less string orchestra, The Brattle Street Chamber Playeres, when another composer dropped out. I looked to Mahler in this piece, specifically, the way his orchestral writing can in one moment resemble intimate chamber music and in next reach earth-shattering tutti climaxes. I tried to find such a range in this piece's much smaller scale. There is an antante sensibility to much of the music, which led me to the piece's title.
