Program Notes

The piece could be described as folk-inspired classical chamber music.  The first movement, in 7/8, opens with a horn call and a response by the woodwinds. The second theme is a “big sky” theme of the type often found in Western movie scores, sounded in the horn and echoed in the woodwinds. The first movement concludes with a reprise of the opening theme. The second movement, in 5/4, alternates between lyrical legato melodies and contrapuntal passages based on folk-dance-like tunes. The third movement, in 7/8, is a set of variations on a folk-like theme; the final variation is based on the horn call that opened the first movement.
