In Motion: Three Movements for Wind Ensemble
In Motion: Three Movements for Wind Ensemble explores contrasting qualities of movement and stillness, whether physical, psychological, or emotional. Catalyst portrays the initial impulse of motion and the start of something new. Driving rhythms and soaring high notes express optimistic energy, joy, and anticipation. Blossoming evokes patient burgeoning, like the gentle unfurling of a flower or a lake gradually filling up with water drop by drop. Terminus returns to forward momentum, but dark colors and dense harmonies convey the tension of coming to an ending, a crossroads or even a collision.
