Programme Note:
Tree Rings muses on the life span of a tree. The music reflects yearly cycles through alternating sections of different, but related material—imagine the lifecycle of a tree sped up. The sections tend to get longer and longer as the piece progresses, perhaps analogous to the length of the rings as a tree ages. The music harnesses a range of emotions to reflect seasonal changes—storms, rain, drought, sun, etc. Tree rings is dedicated to Land's End Ensemble, John Lowry and Evelyn Glennie.

Premiere Information:
Calgary
