Programme Note:
"Two orchestras in two cities I love: I thank both the Toronto Symphony Orchestra and the Kingston Symphony for the opportunity to be a part of this beautiful musical mosaic.

The title of this Sesquie comes from the opening line of one of William Wordsworth’s poems, from his collection Poems, in Two Volumes, published in 1807: “My heart leaps up when I behold…” Wordsworth wrote this short poem—Sesquie-like in its brevity and probably best known for the line “The Child is the father of the Man”—in a single night, in March 1802.

Like Toronto, Kingston curves around Lake Ontario, and in my mind I always see the city on a sunny day: the lake dancing in front of the white limestone buildings, the breeze blowing off the water to cool the hot sun or stir the snow that squeaks cleanly underfoot.

That first line of Wordsworth’s poem seemed about right."
