The subdued and quiet opening of this major work will give the listener little indication of what's to follow. After the quiet opening, the character of the piece completely changes as the percussion lead the way in thematically transforming the Irish reel Highway to Limerick into a thoroughly engaging work for accomplished bands.
Originally dedicated to Dr. Cort McClaren and the UNCG Percussion Ensemble, Limerick Daydreams was the 2nd Place Winner of the 2005 Percussive Arts Society International Composition Contest. The 12-minute work, now scored for full symphonic band with six percussion and piano, is based on the Irish reel Highway to Limerick. The work opens rather mysteriously with fragments of the tune thrown about the ensemble and echoes of the bodhran (a traditional Irish drum) emulated by a dampened bass drum. A raucous drumming section ensues and gives way to the first full presentation of the reel in the flutes. What follows is a series of melodic, rhythmic, and harmonic transformations of the Irish tune-some quite playful, some beautifully melancholy, and some majestically resolute. 'NHD.
