Peter Terry's The Lightning Catcher celebrates youth and the mysteries of summer nights. The wonder of lightning bugs and the hours spent chasing, catching, and releasing them back are childhood staples for many. With bold gestures and textures, this dramatic piece takes the audience back in time to the days of their youth.
The Lightning Catcher is a piece that celebrates youth and the mysteries of a summer night. These mysteries include the wonder of lightning bugs: spending hours chasing them, catching them in jars and then releasing them back into the night, only to catch them again on another perfect night. Coupled with this experience are memories of summer thunderstorms moving across the Great Lakes and a certain naive wish that this too could be caught in a glass jar for later release. The Lightning Catcher is a dramatic work with big, bold gestures and textures. Make sure that you reserve enough volume and energy to make the ending the biggest point in the piece. I enjoyed writing this piece and hope your students will enjoy playing these contrasting styles and that you will find the piece beneficial in teaching important musical concepts.
