"Escape suggests a narrative with a central character who must overcome numerous obstacles, lures, and entanglements to obtain freedom. This central figure is represented by a simple musical motive: a descending half-step, followed by a rising perfect fourth. As the fast-paced journey unfolds, this motive is recast in many shapes and settings." (Program notes) Escape was commissioned and premiered by the Andover High School Orchestra (Bloomfield Hills, MI), David Reed, conductor. Dur.: 8'.
