Book of Hours is an ongoing project, the final goal of which is a 24-movement, evening-length suite for solo piano. The project began in 2008, when pianist John Robertson commissioned nuit d'étoiles; as I began to receive more commissions for short pieces for piano solo, I continued to contribute to the set.

 

Each movement corresponds to an hour of the day (thus, movement 4 corresponds to 4 AM) and takes as its starting point a quote, a poem, or a painting.
