Program Notes

Galante likes music with variety and a lot of climaxes. “With Raise, I wanted something to rise and fall and then rise again to exhibit a splendid reaffirmation of the work’s best moments.” There are two primary themes with a recapitulation of the first.

The title is a play on words. Without seeing the words, one would think of the morning sunrise and transcendent sun’s rays. Upon seeing the words, however, one is immediately drawn to the Resurrection. Both are very stimulating and dramatic images, and fit nicely into the overall feeling of the music.

With its opening fanfare, the work evolves to an intense climax, only to withdraw to a more melodic and flowing second theme. At precisely the right moment, the second theme builds once more to a final uplifting climax as in raising of the son, or sun.
