Programme Note:
Written for the Centenary of the City of Penticton 1908-2008
Ernst Schneider comments: "Since I have
lived in the city for half of this century, it's
my personal experiences and reflections
that are the inspiration for the piece. The
musical language is quite conservative
and accessible, although at times lacking
the traditional feeling of a key when the
third of a harmonic chord is missing or
the music evolves around a tonal centre
rather than a specific key. The form of the
piece is essentially the standard "first
movement" or "allegro" form as found in
the traditional symphony, with two basic
themes used in various ways throughout
the work. It is written for the traditional
Classical period orchestra, i.e., woodwinds,
a pair of horns and trumpets, timpani
and strings."
