Program Notes

The Civil War songs When Johnny Comes Marching Home and Johnny's Gone for a Soldier form the melodic basis for this exuberant, celebratory work honoring the end of war and and the return of soldiers. A shifting kaleidoscope of instrumental effects in 6/8 time climaxes in a masterful combining of the two themes for a thrilling conclusion.
