Program Notes

Baksheesh, the Arabic word for “tip” or “bribe,” is Middle Eastern in flavor and based on an Algerian octatonic scale with intervals of 1-1/2-1-1/2-1/2-1/2-1 1/2-1/2. It also utilizes authentic Middle Eastern percussion instruments to establish the sense of being in that part of the world in much the same way that a film score sets the locale. While the harmonic content is primarily Western, the melodic flavor is that of the East and the meter a comfortable 13-8 in much of the piece. There are brief flute, oboe (cued in alto sax) and euphonium solos and a flute-horn duet.
