Prayer for MingMing, for solo piano, is a lyrical, romantic piece dedicated to my wife (who was not yet my wife at the time). I consider this my first real composition. We’ve come a long way since I wrote this, and my compositional techniques have changed and developed considerably, but my love for MingMing is stronger than ever, and in some essential way the piece still rings true.


Premiered by Raja Rahman December 5, 1995 in New York.
