Sol

Program Notes:

This piece takes its name from the Latin word for the sun and describes the rays of light from the sun throughout the day. The piece starts with the sunrise: a thin orchestra of strings and solo woodwinds that slowly builds up to a bright full sound. Followed by the afternoon: a lively dance that builds in intensity and fervor. Lastly, the long colorful rays of sunset: the full orchestra singing out and slowly fading to only upper strings and harp as the sun disappears into the evening sky.
