Transformations of Darkness and Light was commissioned by the National Kidney Foundation to commemorate fifty years of organ transplantation, and premiered on July 29, 2004, as part of the 2004 Transplant Games. The piece has four movements, each with a literary text relating to the varied emotional experiences of those whose lives have been affected by this lifesaving process. The word Transformation refers to the many personal changes in individual lives as well as the development of medical and surgical techniques over the last fifty years.
