Program Notes

Commissioned for the “Musikpreis Grenchen 1990”, a contest for new music in Switzerland, this attractive suite is in three movements which each pay tribute to the stage. Overture is a brisk and lively movement, full of fun, Entr'acte a tender interlude and Finale a romp for the whole band.
