Programme Note:
This work is to be performed "lontano" throughout its entire duration (except for the obvious protions indicated clearly in the score). Brass instruments always play with sordino (or stopped) unless otherwise specified. The atmosphere should be similar to that which, the poet Robert Frost claimed, is created by the "sound" of poetry: something akin to what one understands of a conversation in the next room--a vocal tune lacking words, to which, optionally "sense" may be fitted.
Headings above the score are taken from the poem "Kubla Khan--or, avision in a dream" written in 1798 by Samunel Taylor Coleridge.
