Program Notes

This celebratory work opens with a soaring melody that is energized by a rhythmic ostinato. Moving into a lush, lyrical theme, the music builds emotionally by use of a powerful and ever robust orchestration before evolving into a variation of the opening theme. A grandiose, slower tempo brings the piece to a riveting conclusion.
