Program Notes

Eureka, a word to express triumph on a discovery. Many of us have felt this feeling before. I've always wanted to write a piece about this, but I could never describe it in music form. Until final (ironically) EUREKA! I figured out how with this short scherzo-like piece for concert band.

The beginning with the woodwinds and the percussion represents the short burst of energy that lights the spark of curiosity. From there we build all the way to the next big moment of the melody. Finally we reach the final explanation – the final discovery that is the culmination of everything!
