Notes from the composer
Kitties! is inspired by my two charming kittens and their very contrasting personalities. “in sunbeams” describes my sweet, easy-going cat, Okra. “the chase” is much more like Zeus, who is a rascal! He climbs on harps, breaks things, and gets into all sorts of trouble. The other two short movements are completely improvised and invite the players to interact with each other by making cat-like sounds with the harp.
