Program Notes

To Dream of Giants is a work of three main musical phases suggesting the idea of the listener entering a dream-like world where giants exist as a noble but fearsome race.

The opening chorale in the woodwind and then brass is meant to sound as the beginnings of sleep. The introduction of the percussion and the rhythmic motif through [30] indicate the transition from simple sleep to an awareness of entering a dream-like world of broad landscapes and epic proportion. Finally, at [62], we encounter our giants. The music from that point should become energetically tribal and heroic in nature throughout until the work’s conclusion.
