Program Notes

The term footsteps can have different meanings. It can suggest everything from gently walking, to mysterious uncertainty, to massive marching. This evocative work by Dana Wilson moves progressively through a spectrum of images and textures, gradually gaining in power and drama throughout. Much like Ravel’s Bolero, Footsteps is based on simple, repeated themes with the intrigue provided by the colorful orchestration.

Footsteps was commissioned by the supporters of the Clarkston Symphonic Wind Ensemble, Clarkston, Mich.
