Program Notes

Inspired by the well-known cave on the Mississippi River that Mark Twain wrote about in his famous book “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer”. This cave has been the site of many adventures and has held many interesting secrets Alternating between a hauntingly lyrical slow section and a driving, syncopated ostinato, this creative work provides an excellent opportunity for you to introduce simple changing meter to your ensemble while the “mysterious and modal!” melodic lines and syncopated rhythms create an outstanding musical framework for a piece which creates the illusion that its more difficult than it really is.
