Ernesto Klar writes:

I composed the original version of enTroPia in 1998 for the "Klaresque Ensemble", my own performing group which is based in Boston and active both in greater Boston and in New York City. This piece won the first prize in the "Julius Hemphill/Jazz Composers Alliance" Composition Award in the large ensemble category in 1999. Instrumentation B is a re-orchestration I did for the Jazz Composers Alliance Orchestra, which performed the piece in 2000 in Boston.

We recorded the piece for our first CD release: Approachable Perspectives - the Music of Ernesto Klar.
