Premiered at Pearl Harbor, this new work from Jay Bocook is a musical remembra nce of that fateful day that launched our country into WWII. Opening with a be autiful and flowing melody featuring the woodwinds, the day begins with a lone bugler but with ominous undertones foretelling the chaos to follow. The attac k is depicted using inventive scoring textures, dissonances and percussion. In the final segment, the opening melody returns juxtaposed over a strong rhythm ic pulse in a hopeful look to the future. A powerful musical statement from on e of today's most gifted composers!
