Dance Symphony incorporates themes I developed as accompanist for dance classes at the Idyllwild School of Music and the Arts in the years 1988-1993.

The first movement plays with dramatic conventions normally associated with opera music or film scores. Pathos alternates with irony, and the whole is framed with a music of simple, unfettered exuberance. The second movement is based on the Ländler, the German precursor to the Waltz; this dance-inspired music is the source of the work's title. The third movement is "stately", because it is a March; it is "meditative", because the motor elements which drive the March are absent at the beginning. As the piece progresses, they are gradually reinstated - only to be withdrawn again at the work's close, leaving the bare skeleton.

The score is priced low because this is basically a perusal score. For parts, please contact me at I would love for your orchestra to play my piece!

(The mp3 is of the entire 3-movement work. Movement 2 begins at about 05:00, and movement 3 at about 10:00)
