Program Notes

    Toward Light (2012) is a dashing and forward driving tone poem for large orchestra. The piece is in a loose knit three part form, with a two fast sections and a slower and mellower middle. was originally conceived to be large scale “Theme and Variations” for orchestra, but changed its direction once I realized that it would work better as a free form tone poem.  As a result, I kept some of the remnants from a previous sketch to work it into the composition that you are about to hear.­­­­
