Program Notes

This enchanting, off-kilter waltz depicts shifting scenes at a magical ball. The work draws the audience in with a soft timpani roll at the beginning and builds momentum all the way to the conclusion. Musical lines dazzle and swirl about in this salute to magic and mystery.

- Program Note by publisher


Spellbound was commissioned by Tracy Redus and the Chisholm Trail Middle School Honor Band in Round Rock, Texas, in honor of Karen Barnett, a recent student who had passed away while attending Texas A&M University. Karen loved fantasy books and was an avid participant on the university quidditch team.

Karen's affinity for magic immediately set the tone for the work, which is a depiction of a waltz through a ballroom populated by witches, wizards, and a variety of fantastic creatures.
