Programme Note:
Disquieted Souls was inspired by pre-Christian Celtic legends of goddesses and the supernatural. The piece starts with the suggestion of a Celtic dance tune and then the music enters the realm of the supernatural with the English horn playing mysterious melodies evoking the twilight of the dense forest. In the middle section the English horn sings in a world that is inhabited by sprites and faeries. The last part of the piece explores deep sadness and lost love, the essence of many ancient Celtic myths. The piece was written for and is dedicated to Carolyn Hove, solo English horn with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. It was commissioned by North/South Consonance and was premiered in New York City with Max Lifschitz as conductor and Patricia Morehead as soloist.

Commissioned by: North/South Consonance
