Program Notes

Using just six notes, this intense work evokes the power and ferocity of an active Indonesian volcano! After an epic opening, bold melodic lines intertwine with moments of clapping and stomping while an array of percussion colors paint a vivid picture of the 1815 Mount Tambora eruption and the tragic aftermath.
