Blue Pacific was written on a cliff side overlooking the sparkling Pacific Ocean in southern Mexico. The sun shines without fail, the temperature rarely strays from the mid-80s, and an ever-present breeze blows off the water. Reminiscent of this setting, a song-like melody develops through a series of keys, reaching its full height near the end. Originally called Bays of Huatulco, it was commissioned by the Stecher and Horowitz Foundation for their Third New York Piano Competition in 2006.
