Scenes From the City
Scenes From The City is a one-movement orchestral work approximately ten and a half minutes in duration. The work was inspired by a weekend trip to New York City in January of 2005. It is a programmatic piece, with obvious attempts to paint an aural picture of different Scenes, experiences, locations, moods, and sounds from one weekend in New York City. The piece is written as an overture and employs rounded binary form (ABA). The order of Scenes represented in the piece is: riding a train into Penn Station, seeing the size of the buildings, Ground Zero, leaving Ground Zero, and finally, leaving the city.
