Coruscation, for orchestra (2012) or wind ensemble (2014) – 7'

Coruscation — the word meaning to gleam, flash, or glimmer -- uses frequent accelerating changes in orchestration and a extensive tuned percussion to create a shimmering effect. The main theme is stated in the vibraphone at the very beginning, and much of the melodic material throughout develops from it.


Recording by the Festival Orchestra at the Tennessee Valley Music Festival, conducted by Laura Jackson
