Program Notes

A ray of sunlight shines down on the earth. Life is slowly waking up. The earth heats up and glows. A stunning planet starts to move...

With a heartwarming melody, the bass trombone sets the colour of our daily spot in the universe. A lyrical theme describes the beauty of our home. A place that breathes, lives but also suffers. Overpopulation, extreme beliefs, hunger, global warming.

In the second part of this piece the bass trombone melody lightly touches all of these topics. But it is the stunning character of planet earth that survives. Nature and humanity going together. That’s what this Hymn for Planet Earth is about.

Hymn for Planet Earth was written especially for George Curran, bass trombonist with the New York Philharmonic.
