I wrote this piece shortly before Gretchen Peters and I left for a tour of Germany and Holland in March, 2011. It was partly influenced by Philip Glass. If Philip had been in the Allman Brothers Band...I was fine tuning it during the tour, and debuted it one night at our concert in Koblenz, a lovely city on the Rhine in Northern Germany. It was received warmly, and I promised the audience I would name it after their beautiful city. David Henry’s cello adds much to this piece.
