Program Notes

As the title suggests, this whimsical piece depicts the joy of riding on a merry-go-round or carousel. The main melody is delightful and memorable, supported by vivid orchestration colors that are unique and fresh. The appealing harmonic structures lean a bit toward the jazz idiom and make this composition very different and interesting.
