Program Notes

The second movement of Aragon 1945-1952 was inspired by the hit country song Tennessee Waltz, written in 1946 by Redd Stewart and Pee Wee King. A 1950 recording by Patti Page became a multimillion seller. Scored in time as a gospel waltz, the work effectively conveys the emotion and charm of the Stewart and King dance favorite with lilting melodic lines, attractive harmonies, and effective contrasts of texture and dynamics.
