Program Notes

Symphony #3 was commissioned by the grand Rapids Symphony, and dedicated to his "most consistently supportive conductor," David Lockington, and the members of the Grand Rapids Symphony. The work is light and filled with catchy theme and snappy rhythms. Hailstork's goal was to write a piece that was lighter in approach than his second symphony.

Scherzo, the third movement of this four-movement symphony, is bright, lively, and energetic throughout. The composer remarked that this is a "jaunty scherzo with many cross-rhythms and a lot of colorful percussion. The bluesy middle section with its 2+2+2+3 rhythm is begun by the unlikely combination of marimba, Indian table and glockenspiel."
