Program Notes

With inspiration provided by an Emily Dickenson poem and fond memories of thrilling drives through the autumn air, the composer has crafted a refreshing musical excursion. Opening sounds as clear and tranquil as the cool, crisp fall air accelerate into the sounds of travel so expressive that you'll sense the wind in your face and the aroma of fallen leaves as you traverse the autumn landscape.

- Program Note by publisher


The coming of autumn brings many changes. Leaves change color and fall. The temperature drops with the crunch of leaves underfoot.

Autumn
Emily Dickenson

The morns are meeker than they were,
The nuts are getting brown;
The berry’s cheek is plumper,
The rose is out of town.
The maple wears a gayer scarf,
The field a scarlet gown.
Lest I should be old-fashioned,
I’ll put a trinket on.
