GHOST TRAIN ERIC WHITACRE PDF

None discovered thus far. Program Notes The legend of the Ghost Train, a supernatural machine that roars out of the night through forgotten towns and empty canyons, is deeply rooted in American folklore, and it was this spirit I worked to capture. The compositional challenge came in creating a larger three-movement work from the first movement which was originally conceived and performed as a single event. I felt that the use of trains as a source of sounds and inspirations was virtually inexhaustible, but I wanted to save the integrity of the original while using it as the architectural foundation. At the Station is just that: the train comes to a roaring halt and the passengers depart. In this movement I see countless images: friends and family reunited, the soaring architecture of the station itself, and the genuine sincerity and innocence of the era.

After a reflective pastiche the locomotive builds up steam and slowly departs, grand and graceful. The Motive Revolution is twofold in its implication. The name refers to the period between and when steam engines revolutionized transportation, and also describes the cyclical treatment of musical motive throughout the movement.

The first movement was written in the winter of and received its premiere March 7th, Movements II and III were written in the winter of , and the entire triptych received its premiere on March 14th, Ghost Train was written for and is dedicated to Thomas G.
