Program Notes

As the title implies, this remarkable composition contains several references to the number five. The 5/4 meter is an obvious connection; more subtle is the clever and prominent use of the interval of a fifth. Also, remarkably, only five different pitches are used except for two measures near the end. Despite using a single tempo throughout, the colorful variety in textures and moods are especially appealing.
