Program Notes

This thoughtful composition offers elements of musical reflection and artistic expression inspired by the beautiful sunsets along the shores of Long Island. Soft hues of color to brilliant rays of light are interspersed with the calm yet exhilarating feelings one experiences when witnessing the power, beauty, and peace of the sun disappearing over the horizon, signaling the end of the day.

- Program Note from publisher

The sounds of this piece strongly evoke the feelings of watching the different colors of a sunset disappearing over the horizon ... The ending softly dies away to a pianissimo. This slow, reflective number is an ideal change of pace in a program.

- Program Note from The Instrumentalist
