Program Notes

The melodic and reverent Ballad is richly scored and contains nicely contrasting instrumental colors. A spirited clapping pattern accompanies the woodwinds in the opening strains of the Dance. The Ballad theme returns in a glorious grandioso setting to close out this well-crafted work.
