"Serenade for Winds and Percussion" seeks to faithfully recreate the spirit of the classical serenade of Mozart's time. Since wind instruments could project better than strings, these serenades were often used for outdoor performances. Though it is not intended that the Serenade for Winds and Percussion be performed outdoors, the theme of the work deals with outdoor associations of the night.The work is cast in five movements. The first, Journey Into Darkness, leads the listener into the exotic and mysterious aura of the night. Following the first movement is Apparitions which is a haunting scherzo-like depiction of the multitude of shadows cast on moonlit nights. The third movement, entitled Romance, is quiet and simple. One should picture a young man serenading his lover on a warm, starlit summer evening. In the fourth movement, Nocturnal Life-Forces, there transpires a march of all the living creatures that adorn the darkness of night. Finally, Journey Into Daylight brings the listener out of the darkness and into the reality of the new day with dramatic fanfare.- DRG.
