Program note: The inspiration for this work came to me one night while listening to the sounds of a windstorm, as the wind increased and diminished in cycles, the room was filled with the changing patterns cast by the movements of branches and leaves. Unlike many of my works that tie in more specifically to a memory, dream or emotional response to an experience, this work has a broader wash of mystery as if looking out from a perspective of a high place as shadows of time and memories travel in waves over a vast emotional landscape below. – RW
Reviews of Shadows of the Wind
"The astonishing vitality of Rain Worthington's Shadows of the Wind lies in its language, with which it transmits, through nostalgic cellos, sumptuous poetic images. It should be noted that Worthington's compositional ideas very often express a message essentially of clear and unambiguous emotions." – Sonograma Magazine
