Program Notes

Having the sound of an epic movie soundtrack, this work was inspired by old collections of children's stories such as Aesop's Fables and Grimm's Fairy Tales. Broad, memorable themes create images that jump off the page while an energetic and highly rhythmic pulse drives the work forward. Just as the written stories did, the music maintains a veil of darkness and intrigue that captures the imagination of the listener.

Commissioned by the Dover Band Boosters (Dover, OH) to celebrate 100 years of the Dover Band Program (1917-2017); Chris Redd, Director.
