Program Notes

During the Revolutionary War, General George Washington ordered a spy ring to be organized to gather critical information about the British forces. This dynamic work creates the sense of danger and intrigue of this operation, opening with strains propelled by an underlying rhythmic layer with flashes of color from the winds and percussion. A reflective middle section features soloistic passages and lush harmonies, and offers a calming mood before the fast tempo returns for the dynamic finish.

Commissioned by the 2016-2017 Ward Melville High School Wind Ensemble (N.Y.), Laura Gustavsen, director.
