Program Notes

This piece is a collection of movements that are based loosely around folk melodies from their respective countries, or around a particular “style” of composition; e.g., the American movement spans different genres of American music, from the expected barn dance to a funky rock and roll. Each movement contains its own leitmotif, each of which reoccurs at some point in the Finale. At the climax of the finale, the American and French themes are juxtaposed against each other, beginning in harmony, moving through dissonance and returning to harmony at the end. It is the composer’s hope that this piece will serve as a reminder that, through music, we are all united.
