Programme Note:
Gatineau River was composed in the summer of 2003 in the idyllic setting of the Gatineau region of Québec. I set out to compose a short and lively piece for woodwind quintet, and the swift-flowing waters of the Gatineau River close by seemed to match its character, as the fluctuations of tempo and texture in the music correspond figuratively to the changes of speed and depth of the river. The orchestral version of Gatineau River retains an emphasis on the woodwind family, employing the instruments across their full registers and in a number of combinations. Gatineau River was composed especially for young audiences as part of a residency with the Windsor Symphony Orchestra with the support of the Canada Council.

Premiere Information:
02/25/2004 Chrysler Theatre, Windsor, Ontario; Windsor Symphony Orchestra, John Morris Russell.
