Notes
Sara Doniach, a Bay area piano teacher, commissioned many works for her students to play, including a series of works from my friend David Rakowski. Soon after Sara and I met in the fall of 1996, she commissioned the six pieces of Topiary for some of her advanced high school students to perform in private recital. The music is published by The Piano Teacher’s Press.
