A Message from the Composer

This work was composed during the Fall of 2021 which was one of the most stressful periods of my life to date. There were many moments where I felt overwhelmed by responsibility, incapable of achieving my dreams, and a failure as a person. My mental state was in a fragile place and the scars are still fresh. One of my few refuges became composing this piece. When I did not know how to explain the things I was going through, I was able to say them with my music. As my mind was racing through all these complex emotions, the one calmness and fresh air I could find was this work. Each movement is almost a photograph of what I was going through at that time and tells a narrative of where I’ve gone. The title Piece of Mine not only speaks of the intimate nature of this work, but of my lifelong search for peace of mind. There are very few times in life where we are allowed to feel content with ourselves and just breathe. By performing and knowing this work, I hope that you take on some of these moments and that you allow the piece to become your own story. Everyone in this world needs more time to just rest and be happy with who you are. I am hopeful that you can find peace of mind in this Piece of Mine.

-Christian Kilgore
