The first two of three movements are meant to be "aural aromas," says Pann, with soft, languid, and lush winds ("a long trail of the softest dynamics"). Harp and celesta are used to impart "an aura of ancient, inward elegance." The Three Embraces ends with a celebratory mix of "pastoral melodies juxtaposed over more modern, angular harmonies." Written to celebrate Allan McMurray's 35 years as Director of Bands at the University of Colorado. (all quotes from the composer) Dur.: 12.5'.
