Program Notes

The composer described Pillars of Creation as descriptive of the Eagle Nebula, as seen through the Hubble telescope. The nebulas is a vast cloud in which stars are made.

As the tiny Earth stands in front of the gigantic cosmos, so the tiny solo oboe stands in from the full wind ensemble, a small entity with something larger happening behind. The winds play a slow choral work, while the oboe plays on top of it.
