Program Notes

This dramatic work “is in modified sonata-form: an exposition comprised of fast and slow themes, a development based on materials of the exposition, and a recapitulation consisting of the fast and slow themes of the exposition super-imposed. The work is tonally oriented with sudden shifts of key centers. Homophonic and polyphonic treatment is intermixed. Soloistic, sectional and tutti scoring of the concert band affords varied textures throughout the composition.” This work has received American and European performances.
