Program Notes

This work is about calling: to awaken the spirits, to one’s love, to dance so that we may forget. ... At various times, the soloist calls to the audience or different members of the ensemble, and ensemble members call to each other. Sometimes one performer dominates the conversation, sometimes a graceful dialogue emerges, sometimes pleas go unanswered.

Calling, Ever Calling was commissioned by the Mid-American Band Directors Association, and given its first performance in 1991 at the 50th anniversary convention of the College Band Directors National Association in Kansas City, with Michael Henoch--oboist with the Chicago Symphony--playing the oboe solo.
