Program Notes

This imaginative work brings forth all the sights and sounds of a busy traffic circle at rush hour. The active and busy music conjures a roadway clogged with commuters, brilliantly brought to life in this musical invention.

- Program Note by publisher


A traffic circle (or rotary as it is sometimes called) is a type of intersection that directs both turning and through traffic onto a one-way circular highway. Located in many cities in the United States and foreign countries, these circles are usually appealing to the eye but they may cause confusion and uncertainty to drivers unfamiliar with the traffic patterns. A traffic circle such as the one at Columbus Square in New York City is often filled with drivers both confident and confused, honking horns, and deleted expletives.
