Benjamin Franklin's love of music has been well-documented in American history, so it's appropriate that these moments in his amazing life are represented musically. The jovial beginning reflects his good-natured personality, while the delicate and ethereal sounds that follow provide a look at his reflective nature. Franklin's "magic squares" inspire the finale, showing the close relationship between mathematics and music. An amazing concept, an amazing cross-curricular piece, an amazing individual!
