Program Notes

Danse Bohémien is inspired by the many great can-cans, galops, and quick-steps that populate the music repertoire. Among my favorites of these is Pas Redouble by Camille Saint-Saens. There is so much unbridled energy and boisterous fun in that piece that one cannot help but be caught up in sheer joy the piece communicates. This is the spirit that I sought to capture in Dance Bohémien (roughly translated as "Gypsy Dance" or "Bohemian Dance"). The piece is intended to be used as a concert opener, finale, or possibly as an encore.

I owe the title to a suggestion by one of my students; Hayley Denton, you are a Bohemian and Gypsy in your own right, and may the musical muses smile upon you for it.
