Brian Balmages

Just as its title suggests, this three-movement contemporary work draws from various types of pop music and dance forms, and sets them in a symphonic framework. The opening movement, Overture, is a short fanfare based loosely on Irish dance rhythms and melodies. The second movement, Ballad, receives its inspiration from various aspects of pop ballads, though no direct references are made. Dense harmonies and interesting textures play an important role throughout the movement. The final movement, Fusion, is a literal combination of rock, funk, swing, and classical in a contemporary setting. Intense and driving, this is an excellent concert finale! You may even want to consider performing the last movement alone as an encore.
