Program Notes

As suggested in its title, Groove Music is a work that focuses on various combinations of rhythms. The first section introduces the groove, layering instruments and changing textures. A thicker, more playful groove is introduced in the second section. Both ideas come together in the final section, concluding with a spectacular wall of color and rhythm.
