Program Notes

Moresca: A Symphonic Pantomime was commissioned by the University of Nebraska at Omaha Symphonic Wind Ensemble, James Saker, conductor. Its premiere performance was February 28, 1980, by the University of Nebraska at Omaha Symphonic Wind Ensemble.

This work is a skillful blend of both the medieval Spanish dance form and contemporary ballet. Through a set of dance variations which contrast in mood and meter, the work unfolds through challenging rhythmic patterns and interwoven individual parts which challenge each instrument, especially the percussionists.
