compelling work incorporates elements of mystery and
intrigue in a whirlwind of sounds, colors, and textures.
Written in a quick 3/4 time, this engaging composition
uses an attractive harmonic language, expressive melodic
lines, and clever orchestrations to invoke the fairy-tale
imagery of Robert Louis Stevenson's poetry in A
Child's Garden of Verses. The playful nature of
the piece moves between a lilting quality and a more
lyrical expressive nature. Wonderful writing and an
excellent change of pace for any concert.
