Program Notes

This work was commissioned by the Indiana Bandmasters Association and premiered March 15, 1992, by the Indiana All-State Honors Band, Timothy Mahr, conductor, at Butler University, Indianapolis. It is “a fantasy work... intended to vividly conjure to mind images of motion. The introduction brings the dancers rushing onto an imaginary stage and assuming a calm, before the first of three highly spirited dances begins. As the dances draw to a close, the chimes strike, signaling an end to the revelry and causing the dancers to run away in to the night.”
