Program Notes

The word "peace has many connotations: "a state of tranquility or quiet, freedom from war and harmony among neighbors", and more personally, "freedom from disquieting thoughts and emotions". This piece was written in an attempt to express ideas such as these. The form is similar to the composer's earlier Balladair (AABCAA) with a modulation leading to a final extended statement of the opening melody, serving as a codetta.
