A Single Movement work for String Orchestra
Commission: String Orchestra of New York (SONYC) (for the String Orchestra arrangement)
Premiere: Feb. 2001 SONYC, Trinity Church, New York
Publisher: Rassel Editions, NY
Written as a stand-alone work or to be paired with its counterpart, So Says the Wind. Manchester Miniature, as the title suggests, is made up of four miniature movements fused into one rounded-binary structure. A mini Allegro movement begins and ends the work separated by a miniature scherzo and terse slow movement. The composer writes: “Manchester Miniature speaks in my American voice. Clearly influenced by the majestic forested hills of Vermont in the richness of late summer foliage, the work reflects that profound optimism which sings through the great landscapes of New England.”
