Program Notes

Possibly for Wind Ensemble is a straightforward, five-minute arrangement (and edit) of my orchestra piece from 2005. Like the original work, it draws from the excitement and exuberance of the many seeming life-possibilities presented to us in our youth.

After a short introduction, the main three-note motive appears in the piano and bass winds. The motive originates from a song that I wrote when I was nineteen and played in a rock band in Ventura, California. I have altered the motive to fit the idiom of an orchestra but it is essentially the same as it was in 1996, and it proves to be the backbone of the entire piece.
