Notes de programme :
This piece is based on the scenario for an opera title Filumena, a project which I am currently writing with playwright John Murrell. The opera is based on the true life story of Filumena Lossandro (nee. Costanzo), a young Italian woman who immigrated to Canada in the early 1900s and settled in the Crowsnest Pass. She was married off at a young age and through this marriage became involved with an Italian bootlegging ring, hence the title.

I wrote this short overture before I started writing the opera. A few of the themes from this overture have ended up in the opera but not all of them. The first of three themes in this piece is a folk-like melody, which eventually segues into a dance tune that one might hear at a traditional Italian wedding party. Perhaps the wedding band has had one too many of the bootlegger's brew, especially the lower brass section. The third theme suggests the passionate elements of the story; betrayal, unrequited love, and the despair at the tragic turn of events. Gradually, the music returns to the theme that started off the piece.
