Program Notes

This composition is built primarily on a 3-note melodic motif (concert G, F and Ab). In addition, a 2-measure pulsating rhythmic pattern is used as a unifying element throughout. These two musical ideas are developed using a variety of harmonic and textural setting to create dramatic points in the music as well as a final sense of resolution.
