Program Notes

Noah's Ark is a composition based on the well-known Bible stories in which Noah builds an ark to conquer the flood. This work portrays four impressions, each of them introduced by a theme. To add dramatic power a synthesizer or a wind-machine can be used. The story can also be read by a narrator during the performance.
