Program Notes

Over the course of the concerto the intervals from which the themes are built compress, from 3rds in mvt. one, to 2nds in movement two, and pounding unisons in movement three. Thus, the Solar Traveller pianist physically experiences the compressive forces and increased tensions we associate with space travel’s incredible speeds through the musical analog of progressive intervallic compression.
