Program Notes

Harford Rhapsody was written for all of my friends in the Bel Air Community Band (Maryland), directed by Scott Sharnetzka. I have a long association with this fine ensemble and have very many friends in northeastern Maryland as a result of my work with the BACB over the years. This piece is meant to be a lyric/dramatic portrait of the gorgeous landscape and wonderful people I know there. At times gentle and haunting, at other times passionately expressive and dramatic, Harford Rhapsody is a kind of summation of what this place and its people mean to me.
