Program Notes

This cutting-edge piece by Larry Clark is a dynamic, colorful and descriptive work that is easy for younger generations to relate to. It begins with a spritely fanfare based on the perfect fourth and perfect fifth familiar from many television technology commercials, The clipped, percussive motives are evocative of the digital age we live in, and as the motives are transformed through different "prisms," it harkens to a more traditional sense of musical expression. There are numerous bold contrasts of style and instrumentation in this brilliantly scored work that give it terrific audience appeal.
