Program Notes

This beautiful lyric work begins slowly with a brief baritone solo and lots of expression throughout. A broad, sweeping theme, and an alternating eighth-note pattern in the clarinets, gives the impression of being over the water, which then builds nicely and soars gracefully to a quiet ending.

- Program Note from publisher


Currituck Sound is a protected inlet of the Atlantic Ocean, located in northeastern part of North Carolina and extreme southeastern Virginia. Thirty miles N-S and 3–8 miles wide, this shallow, island-filled sound is separated from the ocean by the Currituck Banks Peninsula, with no direct access to the ocean from the sound.

Currituck County's Mackay Island and Currituck National Wildlife Refuge as well as Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge and False Cape State Park in Virginia Beach border the sound and are winter habitats on the Atlantic Flyway. Many watersports activities occur in the sound, including parasailing, sea kayaking, and jet skiing. An area of barrier beaches, it is also noted for its duck and goose hunting.
