Program Notes

Mark Camphouse says of his Reminiscences, "When Boise State University Director of Bands Marcellus Brown first contacted me in May 2010 about composing a work for his performance with the BSU Symphonic Winds at the 2011 CBDNA National Convention, I asked him what kind of work he wanted from me. His response was very simple and direct: 'I want something lyrical...song-like, with a duration of approximately five minutes.'

The timing of his call was certainly propitious as I was sketching a work for solo piano having those qualities and duration for a dear friend and George Mason University School of Music faculty colleague whose father had just passed away. I immediately began to think about the rich sonic possibilities of an eventual (modified) version of the work for full symphonic band.

"The name of my friend and colleague's father (Albert Allen Apple) gave me the idea of basing this work on a musical monogram on the pitches A-A-A heard in the refrain of one of the hymns sung during his memorial service: It is Well with My Soul. (A brief quote of that hymn is heard near the beginning of the work). Cast in a broad ternary form, Reminiscences is simple and direct in expression. I hope the qualities of strength and beauty (qualities we associate with the life and career of Dr. Harry Begian and to whose memory this version of the work is dedicated) are appropriately reflected."
