NED RORUM: AIR MUSIC
AIR MUSIC is a set of ten variations for orchestra by the American composer Ned Rorem. The work was completed in 1974 and was first performed by the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra on December 5, 1975. The piece won the 1976 Pulitzer Prize for Music. The work is scored for a large orchestra consisting of three flutes (doubling piccolo), three oboes, four clarinets, three bassoons, four horns, three trumpets, three trombones, tuba, percussion, harp, celesta, piano, and strings, cast in ten movements.
EAGLES takes its inspiration from Walt Whitman's poem "The Dalliance of the Eagles"; a nine-minute instrumental interpretation.
