Here is a video made by Graham Streeter of the recording session of POEM for piano and orchestra that was used in his film called CAGES (2006). Here, the UCLA Philharmonia is conducted by Jon Robertson, then Chair and conductor, and Walter Ponce plays the piano solo.

Very nice! Best of your works I can recall. Classic.

Very nice indeed—it put me in a whole different and more peaceful state.

And I was again reminded how much performance quality has improved at UCLA!

A very lovely piece of music, contemplative and organic…the performance was very beautiful and heart-felt…brilliant!
