Symphony in G minor

“Kindersymphonie”

Dedicated to Steve Robert Kulish, who has been there every step of the way


Program Notes:

The subtitle is “Kindersymphonie,” literally meaning “Children Symphony,” is based on the original concept of a symphony for children. Despite evolving beyond that original mandate, this piece evolved into a view of the world from the eyes of a child. The piece is filled with many emotions, often overlapping; playful, tragic, majestic, nostalgic. Throughout we see the different emotions also changing over time as the child matures into adulthood.
