  • Lake Barcroft Haiku, for Concert Band.

Available now at https://www.jwpepper.com/Lake-Barcroft-Haiku/10929293.item#/submit

This five-part suite for concert band is based on five Haiku about aspects of life around the Lake Barcroft, Virginia community. Each movement starts with a narrator reading the Haiku for that movement.
1. "Welcome to the Lake!" is an off-kilter march-like romp that illustrates the experience of finding, choosing, and renovating a 1950s house across from the lake.
2. "Spring Springs" suggests explosions of blooms, ending in a more ordered fugue as lake gardeners bring order out of chaos.
3. "Early Morning Swim" is about calm, then undulating water, the rhythm of swimming, a bright sunrise, and a heron glaring from shore.
4. "Summer at Beach Two" evokes children playing and swinging, while a party barge cruises by with a radio playing.
5. "Fall Falls" evokes falling and then floating and sinking leaves, and ends with the full band in a blaze of color.

 Here's a recording:


 Romance, a concerto for two English horns and chamber orchestra, is available at J.W. Pepper. Program notes: "This concerto for two English horns and chamber orchestra is in seven short movements, played without pauses between them. It depicts a life-long romantic relationship, from courtship to fond memories. All relationships evolve, and this piece includes elements of flirtation, cooperation, passion, fun, boisterousness, drama, sadness, community, and quiet reflection, by use of a wide palette of orchestral colors, rhythms, and textures. The beginning depicts courtship, and the end is an elegy. The audience can participate in the creative process by imagining the nature and events evoked by the parts between those two."
