Program Notes

Inspired by a memorable commuter jet trip taken by the composer, Tailspin is an aggressive and hard-hitting composition capturing the peril of an airliner in rapid descent. Contemporary harmonies and riving rhythms contribute to the unique and fresh sound of this work. Fasten your musical seatbelts and prepare for landing!
