Program Notes

The title of this work comes from a Japanese plant of the same name. The vine is one that climbs and coils throughout everything that it comes near. Kudzu Vine also climbs and coils throughout each of the sections and individual instruments that it touches in both the melodic and harmonic development of the piece. Written by Appalachian State University’s professor of music composition Dr. Ben Hjertmann, this work has a driving nature that captures the listener just as its namesake captures the world around it.
