Falling Leaves is a lush ballad that provides an opportunity for ensembles at any level to explore rubato, tenuto, and vibrato. The inspiration for this work was a beautiful fall day when the leaves were turning color and falling from the trees, creating a stunning scene.
" This haunting work will program well in a change-of-pace moment, and the rehearsals should bring attention to phrasing, style, balance, and blend."
