Program Notes

According to Greek mythology, Kronos, the Greek god of time, kept constant vigil over the interaction of all creatures on the earth. In the same spirit, composer Robert W. Smith has written Kronos for the developing band as a performance and teaching piece that focuses on the interaction of various musical elements in time. Some musical ideas move faster while others move more slowly. However, it is the interaction between the lines that ultimately creates the music.

Kronos was commissioned y and is dedicated to the Deer Path Middle School Bands (Lake Forest, Illinois) under the direction of Heather Pettit and Steven Nendza. The band premiered the piece under the baton of the composer May 29, 2003.
