Though not quality video… The music comes through in this exquisitely soulful world premiere performance of “In Passages” by violinist, Pam Davis as soloist with the Missouri State University Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of conductor, Christopher Kelts.
Program Note: As with most of my works, the music arises from the emotional experience of life. I think of this as a reflection on the passages of emotion — that ebb and flow of the feelings that continually emerge and recede repeatedly throughout life.
The music is written to balance the interplay between the soloist and the orchestra, rather than the traditional role of the soloist being in the forefront. The soloist should seem to emerge from the orchestra in much the way that intense feelings seem to surface from the unconscious, giving voice to our inner emotional currents, and then recede back into the chorus of the subliminal.
