New England Overture
Notes on the piece:
I am a born-and-raised New Englander, and thus feel a deep connection to each of the four seasons. This piece is an overture to the “music” that I hear around me everyday in New England’s little corner of the world. The piece begins in winter, which I find to be the warmest of seasons, and then continues on into the bustling spring, the multi-faceted summer and the nostalgia of autumn, eventually wrapping itself back around into winter. Each season takes its own spin on the limited thematic material of the piece, representing the varying differences on the underlying constant.
