    Program Notes
    The Thracian people, present in Southeastern Europe beginning around 1000 B.C., were regarded as bloodthirsty barbarians by Greeks and Romans of the time. In one version of the Greek myth of Orpheus, the Thracians confronted Orpheus while he was searching for Eurydice, inviting him to join in their barbaric indulgences before killing him upon his stiff refusal.

    The first movement of Thracian Rhythm depicts the entry of the Thracians, singing and romping as they greet Orpheus. The second movement, ‘Decadent,’ represents the Thracians and their bacchantes, or drunken female revelers with whom their relationship was far from innocent and pure. Finally, the third movement includes Orpheus’ refusal to join in the Thracian festivities, and the Thracians’ reaction, resulting in Orpheus’ death.

    Thracian Rhythm was commissioned by Portuguese percussionist Vitor Castro.
