Program Notes

The Aegean Symphony is comprised of four narrative movements telling the story of four Greek mythological legends: Phaeton's ill fated chariot ride across the sky, Sisyphus's doomed eternity of frustration, the origin of the Pan flute, and Pandora's curiosity that released the ills of the world, only to be comforted by Hope at the conclusion.
