Program Notes

The title The Devil's Workshop is based on the two most prominent harmonic components of the work. Tritones were, in ancient times, referred to as the 'devil’s interval.' Chromatic scales were likewise seen as evil sounds. This, combined with the goofy character of the music and the mischievous percussion sounds, may make you think of a playful little devil puttering around in his workshop on a Saturday afternoon.
