Program Notes

Daniel in the Lion's Den was dedicated to and written expressly for Daniel Perantoni in 1991. [Note the pairing of the soloist's first name with the first word of the title.] The work is in one movement and requires considerable range and technical ability to perform. It was an attempt to compose a piece that would blend the old Herbert L. Clarke performance techniques with 20th century compositional devices.

The premiere performance was given by Perantoni and the United States Air Force Band, Lt. Col. Alan L. Bonner conductor, at the 1992 International Tuba-Euphonium in Lexington, Kentucky.
