Program Notes

Desert Voices depicts life in the desert. This captivating work begins with the haunting sounds of a baron desert as relentless heat hits it by day. At night, exotic plants and animals spring to life, portrayed with rhythmic vitality and bold musical statements. The work ends as softly as it began, with the relentless sun once again beating down on the parched desert.
