Programme Note

Composer's Note:

The Sound of the Light, for flute, violin, trumpet, trombone and piano, was inspired by the children I met when I visited New York Presbyterian Hospital with members of Ensemble ACJW. I was amazed at the complexity and emotional depth of the compositions these young musicians created, and wanted to create a tribute to their enthusiasm and bravery. The Sound of the Light is a musical depiction of growth and transformation. A lighthearted opening grows into a mysterious echoing middle section, but it's the dancing grooves at the end that I feel best reflect the energy and spirit of all the young composers I met at the hospital.
