Programme Note:
Pluck was composed in 2008 for the Morningside Music Bridge String Orchestra.
The first performance was conducted by Nicholas Pulos.
Pluck has several meanings of which I was mindful: the playing technique of pizzicato,
of which there is a lot in this piece; the hand-picked selection of the students in the MMB programme; the courage of these young performers for choosing music as a career.
There are four movements in the piece:
I - Risoluto, II - Amabile, III - Adagio, which leads without a break into IV - Energico.

Commissioned by: Morningside Music Bridge

Premiere Information:
31/07/2008 Epcor Centre for the Performing Arts Calgary Morningside Music Bridge String Orchestra Conductor: Nicholas Pulos
