Program Notes

From Every Horizon recreates a series of moods that are an evocation of the spirit of New York. For example the opening movement reflects little-known pastoral mood that pervades the outskirts of the big town. The hurly-burly of the commuter, the bustle of the typical New Yorker, the tired out-of-towner, all inspired the composer in the writing of this score. The music is a version of a score done for the film of the same title shown at the New York World’s Fair.
