First Performance: December 11, 1993, New York, NY, New York Philharmonic ? Conductor: Leonard Slatkin


You hear echoes of Debussy's "Jeux" in the delicate Impressionistic haze that surrounds this elegantly crafted piece, the refined solo writing for flutes and trumpets in particular. Listening to it is like looking at the waters of a pond that's still on the surface but teeming with life underneath. The CSO players drew its subtleties into a resonant whole and joined in the applause that greeted the composer at the end. Rands looked pleased and he had every reason to be.
