SINFONIETTA for string quintet (2-1-1-1) or string orchestra was commissioned by the Imperial Symphony Orchestra to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the American Music Center, the official United States information center for music. The music commences with a beautiful, mystical introduction that is somewhat transparent in nature. Haunting melodies for the solo viola and violin are superimposed over the sustained sonorities of the ensemble creating a deeply reflective mood. The music gradually becomes agitated and builds in intensity as the introduction gives way to a sequence of passages of varying length and character: A fanfare-like transition followed by an energetic segment characterized by driving rhythms and changing meters leads to a section featuring buoyant melodies where, through the fast-moving surface elegance, runs an undercurrent of tension. The composition concludes in a spirit of triumphant proclamation.
