Program Notes

Commissioned by The Consortium for the Advancement of Wind Band Literature, led by James Kull.

- Program Note from publisher

Lasting Light was inspired by a visit the composer took to the Grand Canyon with his family. Mr. Cuong wanted to write a work that would reflect the sunset over the canyon, followed by the lingering sunlight, then the hazy greyish blue light of dusk, and then the light of the stars.
