Program Notes

To capture the sentimental beauty of the month of August, a pastoral melody introduces the overall gentleness of the work. The theme calmly progresses through harmonic extensions, interspersed with fanfares small and large, percussion effects and casual woodwind soli. The drifting, mysterious sonority compels and promotes individual maturity and expressiveness.
