Program Notes

Written for Dr. Terry Austin, retired director of bands at Virginia Commonwealth University, Broughton shares the following on Terry Takes a Walk (2022):

Terry Takes a Walk, composed for the occasion of a friend's retirement, is a sort of good-natured musical ramble, and begins with a solo bassoon playing not the main tune but the bass line. The bass line repeats, and the main melody is added, played by a solo clarinet; and the piece is off. These two elements, the main theme and the bass line, are repeated in the manner of a rather aimless stroll, the presumed walker leisurely looking at this and that, simply out for a good time, going hither and thither. It's a piece to enjoy listening to, not to think too much about.
