Program Notes

Frenergy was commissioned by the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra in 1998. Estacio’s combination of “frantic” and “energy” into the work’s title speaks as well to its nature and verve as any worded description could.

Following the pounding opening of drums, the brisk piece is comprised of four short melodic ideas that are tossed among the instruments. The first of these is a chromatic melody first heard in the woodwinds. It is then often complemented by a showy tune frequently presented by the brass. The third idea is first heard on the flute, and is perhaps the most substantial of any theme in the work, strongly characterized by the 6/8 lilt of the piece.
