  • Notes & Instrumentation

    Wind Dancer is a set of variations based on a four-note pentatonic motive. Each variation should seem to become more lively as if a dancer is spinning wildly with arms and legs flailing in the air. Although minimalistic in nature, the work draws on traditional American sounds first heard in the music of Aaron Copland and Leonard Bernstein.

    Program Notes
    Wind Dancer was commissioned by Jacquie Meunier and the Southeast Polk High School Wind Ensemble in 2003. The work is a set of variations based on a four-note pentatonic motive. Each variation should seem to become more lively as if a dancer is spinning wildly with arms and legs flailing in the air. Although minimalistic in nature, the work draws on traditional American sounds first heard in the music of Aaron Copland and Leonard Bernstein.
