I wrote this piece out of a desire to blend together the versatility of both the woodwind quintet, and the string quartet. I named it European Dances because the style and structure of all three movements resonated with different aspects of major cultures in Europe such as those of France, Austria, Hungary, and Great Britain. The first two movements are rather ambiguous in their national associations, but not so much as to prevent the listener from creating their own stories to go along with them. The third movement is definitely mainly influenced by the music of Hungary, and Eastern Europe.

J'ai �crit cette pi�ce sur un d�sir de se fondre ensemble la polyvalence � la fois du quintette � vent, et le quatuor � cordes. Je l'ai appel� parce que les danses europ�ennes de style et la structure de l'ensemble des trois mouvements, en r�sonance avec les diff�rents aspects des grandes cultures en Europe, telles que celles de la France, l'Autriche, la Hongrie et la Grande-Bretagne. Les deux premiers mouvements sont plut�t ambigus dans leurs associations nationales, mais pas autant que d'emp�cher l'auditeur de cr�er leurs propres histoires pour aller avec eux. Le troisi�me mouvement est d�finitivement principalement influenc� par la musique de la Hongrie et l'Europe de l'Est.
