Score and Parts
The music of turbulent times suggests the ebb and flow of the intense uncertainty felt by many with the more pleasant aspects of everyday life. Following the lyrical, almost plaintive introduction, stormy passages give way to sections of relative tranquility, only to reappear. Although the texture occasionally thins to feature one performer, overall the players get little rest. This is by design, reflecting the energy-draining expreriences of many during these tumultuous and changing times.
