Program Notes

Tilting Sunward was inspired by the springtimes I spent living near a pond in a remote forested area. In the piece I sought to evoke the warming winds, dense chatter of frogs, gathering songbirds, dramatic arrival of geese, and more broadly, a sense of an insistent, elemental force, and the gradual stirring and revival of life.
