Chapter 1: Themes
September, a Tone Poem, February 7, 2022
Here is a general outline of the work as I envisioned it. I have two very brief snippets of thematic material (less than a minute each) which provide the basis for most of the resulting work. Some of the details of these snippets do not match the final work exactly, since they were extracted as I worked.
In general, reflecting the programmatic theme, the piece moves from austere to active, more in keeping with the human implications of the time of year.
