Program Notes

From the pen of the renowned Robert W. Smith comes this work which includes all of his compositional trademarks: highly inventive percussion writing, stylistic solo creation, and tension and release, all with brilliant use of occasional dissonance sounding much more difficult than it plays. This dynamic and highly dramatic work is not for the faint of heart.
