Cold FusionPeter Terry - Carl Fischer LLC
A dramatic piece for string orchestra that alternates a syncopated fanfare with a bold yet lyrical theme. These contrasting ideas chase each other throughout the piece as the syncopated figure persists under the lyrical theme. This rhythm blossoms into a restatement of the fanfare, leading to a climatic ending. The title alludes to the idea of a massive amount of energy being unleashed through fairly simple means.
