Program Notes

The cinematic approach to the music of Arctic Fire portrays many different images of the North - the crimson sunlight glinting off the icebergs, the radiance of the northern lights, the blaze of the red twig dogwood, the scarlet red sunsets, and the fiery spirit of the people who live there. The piece opens and closes with a series of dramatic musical snapshots. In between, the music evolves and transforms through a wide range of stylistic textures and moods.
