Program Notes

Epic in scale and sonority, this highly charged piece takes a brooding, churning groove and builds it to an extraordinary climax, creating a thrilling “wall of sound” that will leave players and audience alike charged and inspired.

The work is taken from Whitacre's opera/musical Paradise Lot: Shadows and Wings. It was commissioned by the Lockport (Ill.) Township Wind Symphony, Brian Covey, conductor.

The title Libertas Imperio translates from the Latin as "freedom government."
