Quick Overview

"Orchestra Music I", dramatic movements for orchestra, is the first full-scale orchestral work I have undertaken since the abortive attempts of my late-teens. In a true sense this work, together with the "Chamber Music II" written for the Philadelphia Orchestra, are culminative of many years of conscious craft expansion, of the attempt to encompass as much of experiential reality as I am able.

"Orchestra Music I", therefore, is by no means an eclectic or a specialized work, rather it is one which is both dramatic and comprehensive in scope, with motion and gesture flighting, flinging the performer and listener into realms of Faustian-like search and Dionysian lyricism.
