Program Notes

Interruptions is a newer, shorter version of Bryant’s earlier work, Interruption Overture. The music begins with a lively melody in B-flat major over familiar, comfortable chord progressions, but it is soon punctuated by abrupt dissonance. The music quickly resumes in its original character, but these loud interruptions rudely reappear, and soon the piece takes abrupt turns through different tonalities. It finally settles into a four-on-the-floor groove, as the opening melody and the interruptive material learn to coexist, leading to a climactic conclusion.
