Program Notes

Musical drama and humor are on display in this homage to Romantic orchestra repertoire. A blazing tempo, interspersed with very slow sections, sudden dynamic shifts and the juxtaposition of d minor and F major add contrast to this dynamic work.

- Program Note by publisher

The composer writes, "Danse Carnivale was inspired by the many great can-cans, galops, and quick-steps that populate the music repertoire.... Some of my favorite dances for orchestra are the Brahms Hungarian Dances. I have always loved the interplay of drama and humor that pervades these pieces.”

The work presents challenges in tempi, style, dynamics and modality. For the 2103 Midwest Clinic performance, the composer has written a special percussion break, which will feature a tambourine ensemble comprised of wind players, and a special tribute to the Lone Star State!
