Program Notes

Aquatica was commissioned by the Salisbury High School Concert Band, Rachel Reinecke, Director, as a musical tribute and remembrance of band director and school superintendent Robert Gross, and reflects both his enjoyment of life and water sports.

The piece opens atmospherically in tranquil beauty – like a serene lake, a calm sea, or an eerie underwater scene. After a brief, meditative transition scored for four solo instruments (representing Gross's immediate family), the piece bursts into a spirited 6/8 theme that suggest both water creatures and craft moving playfully through the waves. The material is developed and recapitulated in a stirring way to convey the fun and adventure Gross found in his family, work and play.
