Program Notes

Song for Lyndsay was commissioned by Jack Stamp at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. It is an expansion on a short and unnamed piano piece that Boysen wrote for his wife, Lyndsay, in 2005.

The wind piece is larger in length and scope than the source material; in the score, Boysen describes it as “a very personal work ... more than anything else a simple love song dedicated to Lyndsay and what she has meant in my life.”

The piano piece is used as a starting point, and the material in the winds is either based on or a direct quotation of it. Lyrical in nature and just over five minutes long, solo horn and solo flute are prominent throughout; this scoring is deliberately and symbolically used because Boysen plays the horn and his wife the plays the flute.
