2004 – 5 Movements – Duration: 42 minutes
Minimum orchestra required: 2 fl(picc), 2 ob (EH), 2 cl, 2bsn, 3 trp, 4 hrn, 3 trb, tba, 3 perc, timp, harp, strings
Description: Five movements, each based on a card from the tarot deck. Although it has not been done, I have always thought that it would be cool to have a local luminary draw the cards from the conductor’s hand and then project them behind the orchestra (they are very colorful) and then play the movements in the order they were drawn. Below are the movements as performed by the Capital City Symphony.
