Program Notes

For the Atlanta Youth Wind Symphony, Atlanta, Georgia, Scott A. Stewart, Music Director and Conductor.

- Program Note from score

Ignition is a blindingly fast, raucously energetic concert opener that derives its title from the consecutive rising three-note cells that are the building blocks for almost the entire work. However, the energy unleashed in the music and the imagery of the title serve both as a metaphor for the "spark" of creativity, and as a "celebration in sound" for those who find and follow their own true life’s passion and pass it along to others, "igniting" the flame for another generation.
