Program Notes

Having moved to the San Francisco Bay Area in 2016, I am always amazed at the beauty of where I live. My daily drive over the Bay Bridge is a special part of my routine. No matter how I am feeling that day, looking over the bay into the skyline of San Francisco clears my head and fills me with joy.

One day, I was crossing the Bay Bridge, and I accidentally left the window down just slightly. I heard a whistling in the wind. There are often high winds on the bridge, and this particular sound was very musical. It is the inspiration for the opening trumpet and horn lines, which form the foundation of this work.
