Program Notes

Cityscape, a fanfare for winds and percussion, was written for and dedicated to James F. Keene and the University of Illinois Wind Symphony. This symphonic fanfare was designed to make a bold opening statement for the ensemble's 2006 performance in New York City's Carnegie Hall. Intense, clashing harmonies and tight, vertical rhythms combine with moments of calm yet unsettled release to depict the atmosphere within the endless canyons of metal and cement in the heart of the city.
