Quick Overview

"Journal" was composed in January and February, 1990, under a commission from the ?Music of Our Time? Festival in Bloomington, Indiana. The work is scored for chamber orchestra.

"Journal" was composed during a period of time when the composer was in residence through a fellowship at the Rockefeller Foundation?s villa in Bellagio, Italy, on Lago di Como. In this idyllic circumstance, the composer, always engaged in his work by literary forms, deliberately responded to the physical, psychological, and emotional landscapes created and bounded by the time of this residency.

The work was premiered in the summer of 1990 and has subsequently been recorded for release on Bridge Records in the summer of 1994 by the June in Buffalo Chamber Orchestra.
