Program Notes

Finding one’s voice as a composer can be thrilling, exhausting, exhilarating, and terrifying.  It leads you into unknown lands, while at the same time bringing you to the place you want to be.  In this program CMS presents three works written by composers at times when they were examining and transforming their own unique styles – sometimes inspired from the old, sometimes searching for the new, but always in an effort to share their own voice.
