Program Notes

This vibrant work opens with a brilliant fanfare highlighted by woodwind embellishments, followed by an exciting and spirited dancelike movement. In the tradition of festival-winner Summer Dances, this composition evolves from a simple theme and develops throughout. A slow, lyrical section provides opportunities for chamber ensemble work before the opening fanfare is reintroduced in a new and refreshing form.
