Program Notes

From Robert Buckley's grandly cinematic suite describing impressions of the seas of the moon, the second movement, Foaming Sea, was inspired by the composer watching the ocean during a violent storm with waves exploding and crashing. The sense of excitement and exhilaration eventually leads to the calm after the storm, as turbulent darkness gives way to light.
