Program Notes

Of this piece, the composer writes:

November has always been, for me, a very melancholy month. Autumn is my favorite time of year, and the end of November and approach of winter means an end to the magnificent display of color that the fall affords us. It is also a time of year when the days grow short and the first hints of winter are felt in the air. Many people view their lives in terms of seasons, with young love being Spring and Summer. Therefore, Autumn would imply a love that has been aged and deepened by the passage of time. As I grow older, I find that my friendships are more precious, my family more important, and my heart fuller, although tinged with a regretful nostalgia for all of the time that has passed. These emotions and the general mood of November is what inspired this music.

From the Grand Mesa Website:

In this nostalgic work, the composer calls on the mood of late autumn to reflect on loved ones and times past. Memorable melodies help paint a range of emotions in this subtle work of love, a moving tribute to those held dear.
