Program Notes

A warlock is a male who practices witchcraft. This little tonal caricature seeks to musically portray this enigmatic character in a somewhat less than frightening way. The tri-tone and its usage in the Middle Ages was forbidden, but today has become more associated with its rather “devious” sound and pops up every so often in music of that nature. The opening is that of the shroud of mystery surrounding the character. The main body of the piece is the swirling cone of energy that the character possesses and the waltz section is a dance related section containing a bit of devious comic relief.
