Program Notes

Wery's explains that his Dance Suite is akin to a Baroque dance suite, a once-popular form in which composers like Bach and Handel took popular dances like the courante, saraband, and gigue and transformed them into concert music. Wery does the same with the tango, waltz, polka, and fox trot. Each movement has a title; one of the movements is titled "Dog Day Tango" but it's a lazy tango that evokes the hottest days of summer. "It's indolent and slow and sags back into its lawn chair at the end," says Wery.
