Porgram Notes:


This is piece developed out of an orchestration exercise based on an arpeggiated major triad. I wanted to challenge myself with certain aspects of writing that I haven’t been focusing on so far. I asked myself how long I could build one idea without loosing my breath. Also I tried to be simpler in tonal language than I ever was before without falling into the trap of being plain and boring. I hope I succeeded. Judge yourself.
