Program Notes

This multi-faceted work includes three brief connected and musical tableaus that each presents its own distinct mood and style. The opening Intrada explores 6/8 time using an uplifting fanfare and rhythmical motifs. The slower Serenade provides contrast that begins with an alto saxophone solo, then utilizes the full ensemble to create warm, rich timbres in this gentle and lyrical movement. The closing Galop is as tuneful as it is technical, providing the ensemble with an energetic and fast-paced romp to conclude this delightful piece.
