Program Notes

This mature lyrical work uses complex harmonies and textures amidst a sea of colors and timbres. Great opportunities for chamber playing exist throughout, with solos provided for oboe (cued elsewhere) and trumpet. From the softest and darkest of sounds to the most powerful and soaring lines, this work is certain to take you on an incredible emotional journey.
