Program Notes

Sinfonia VI: The Four Elements presents listeners with a sonic representation of the elements. In the first movement, three solo clarinets take on the role of “Wind”. In movement two, the hearty solo baritone portrays “Earth”. In movement three, the solo alto saxophone and trumpet trade off parts fluidly, portraying “Water”. Finally, the sinfonia ends in movement four, “Fire”, a rousing movement featuring percussion.
