Program Notes

Spring Serenade was written for the Butler University Wind Ensemble in Indianapolis, Indiana, conducted by my great friend, Robert Grechesky, who had conducted the premiere performance of my work,Shadowcatcher for brass quintet and wind ensemble in 1997 with the American Brass Quintet and subsequently performed the solo part in the premiere performance of my Euphonium Concerto, also with Butler. Spring Serenade was the third wind ensemble piece which Robert Grechesky was responsible for – a joyful, celebratory work written for a wind ensemble festival held at his school in 2006. Musicians from around the state of Indiana participated in this exciting festival, and many of them performed the premiere under his direction at the culminating concert. The work brims with lively themes, rich chorales, lyrical lines and fanfarish gestures, all celebrating the beautiful, rich colors inherent in the glorious sounds of wind instruments.
