Program Notes

Divertimento for Winds and Percussion was written as a tribute to three American composers who shared a common interest: Aaron Copland, Leonard Bernstein and George Gershwin were each intrigued with jazz, and each incorporated elements of the idiom in his own music. Roger Cichy became interested in Bernstein's writings on the influence of African-American music and the effects of jazz on the works of Copland and Gershwin. He has used the musical notes C (Copland), B (Bernstein) and G (Gershwin) to form the nucleus for much of the thematic and harmonic material in Divertimento. These three notes are dominant in three of the work's four movements.
