Program Notes

The composer states that "this music is reflective in both mood and shape ... Its general character resembles that of a chorale prelude. It is monothematic, a germinal phrase placed by the solo flute at the outset, functioning as a basis for further melodic movement and motival development.

The work is dedicated to the San Francisco State University Symphonic Band, Edwin Keuth, Director.
