Sometime, every composer is going to be asked: for whom do you make your music? I could probably answer with something ambitious or pretentious or wise-assious. I could say that I do it for fame, love, or money, to satisfy my own curiosity or just on a whim, whether as an intellectual pursuit or emotional release. But, of late, I've had no more attentive listener than my daughter Emma, who listens with fresh ears and is equally ready to share an enthusiasm or a critique and -- devoted already -- almost always asks to hear something again.
