Program Notes

Scenes from an English Landscape is a brief nostalgic tone poem taking its inspiration from visions of rural England as depicted in the paintings of John Constable, the novels of Thomas Hardy and the music of Gustav Holst and Ralph Vaughan Williams. I imagined a community of villagers coming out of church and filling a village square with their vibrant presence. A chorale like theme is stated in the brass and then taken up at three times the tempo in the woodwinds. At the end of the work both versions of the theme are stated together to bring the piece to a triumphant climax.
