Program Note
“Arise!” was written for the Aries Brass Quintet of Denver, Colorado. They had asked for a brief, energetic concert opener, and so the feel of the piece and its title (“Arise” from “Aries”) popped into mind at the same instant.

“Arise!” mixes old and new. Its harmonies and rhythms are more nearly modern, yet its propulsive nature, and its continuous working out of a small number of motives and thematic fragments is very Baroque.
