Description

for full orchestra Overture for the End of a Century takes its melody, harmony, and color from the tradition which has defined the orchestra in our century. At the same time the work explores approaches to sound that have become a part of our musical world in this last century: the mixing board, which brings background elements to the foreground; the computer screen which makes fragments as interesting as complete lines; and the synthesizer with its new sounds and emphasis on color and pulse.show more
