Trois Hommages is just that - an homage in three movements to a few composers who have inspired me over the years. Bela Bartok's gorgeous brass chorale from his Concerto for Orchestra was the inspiration for the first movement, Duke Ellington's exotic jazz-noir writing suggested the second movement's Danse Macabre, and Sergei Prokofiev's diabolically clever modulations in the Gavotte from his Classical Symphony were the jumping-off points for the third movement's Gigue, with not a little Carl Stalling (of Warner Brothers cartoon fame) thrown in for good measure.
