I called my composition A Plug for Pflug, inspired by Christiane Pflug’s Kitchen Door and Esther. I was one of five Canadian composers. Each of us chose five works of art in the National Gallery of Canada we thought would be good inspiration for composition. Radio 2 listeners narrowed it down to one painting for each of us and that painting became our muse.
