Programme Note:
Music of the Romantic Era, a frequently light-hearted and even irreverent piece, was born out of a very serious concern that classical music is gradually disappearing from our lives. While it is revered, it is also largely unknown except for a few 'Greatest Hits' which tend to be thought of as monumental, somber, important, and alas, dull! I wanted to explore the humour, whimsy and energy of earlier music, and perhaps brush off a few cobwebs along the way. Music of the Romantic Era starts with an ending (cadences abound), briefly
visits a concerto, and concludes plaintively, with echoes of music reminiscent of the past, as if heard from a distance.

Premiere Information:
January 13, 2006, Windsor Canadian Music Festival, Capitol Theatre, Windsor Ontario; Members of the Windsor Symphony Orchestra; conductor John Morris Russell.
