Program Notes

Foiled Again is a tribute to the dastardly deeds of the sepia-toned, mustachioed villains of the silent movie era. With billowing capes and menacing cackles, these caricatures of evil-doers were typically found tying maidens to railroad tracks or dynamite sticks. When their plots were inevitably foiled by the dashing hero, the villain would cry “Curses! Foiled again!” The piece concludes with accelerando and crescendo as the villain’s plot comes to a head. However, if the audience listens closely, they will hear the hero giving a knowing wink to the camera as the pictures fades out.
