Program Notes

Day described Lightning Round as “a composition that depicts high energy and fast kinetic motion, as the motivic ideas pass from one instrument to the other, becoming more intertwined. Like a lightning round of a video game, you must think quick on your feet to pass, and in this case, to make it through the composition.”

The work, commissioned by Jamal Duncan, was written for the Arizona State University Wind Symphony.
