Program Notes

Cameron's Dream encompasses many moods and styles, with the goal of introducing younger players to diverse musical expressivity within appropriate technical demands. It is dedicated to my young son, Cameron, and was inspired from the practice of intermedii (interludes) of the late 16th century – musical excerpts of various themes and styles presented between acts of a play. They are considered the forerunner to opera, and were often brief spectacles incorporating dance. Such intermedii frequently told a story with moral or political overtones.

Using this as my description, Cameron's Dream introduces a whimsical fantasy for young plyers to express brief scenes within an overarching story: Sailing to Dreamland; Gypsies vs. Pirates; Man Overboard; Heroic Measures; and Teddy's Lullaby.
