Programme Note:
The work was written in remembrance of the events which happened after the composer and his family left Romania, in 1980 (through Greece, Toronto, Montreal and to Regina). The sections of the Suite are not meant to be specific dances, but they borrow some characteristics from the pre-classical Suite, for example, the three-beat dotted meter of the Gigue in "Slow-Waltz", the restrained and solemn style of the Pavane in "Recitative", or the lively tempo of the Bourree in the "Finale".
The five movements of the Suite are to be played without interruption.

Premiere Information:
January 3, 1992, Government House, Regina; Regina Symphony Chamber Players
