PROGRAM NOTES     
Amaranthine

amaĚranĚthine
1. of or relating to an amaranth. 2. Undying. 3. Of the color amaranth.

Amaranthine is an evolving song of passion, friendship and love. A programmatic work in the sense it is a musical description of what  you might hear while looking, thinking or reminiscing about the one you hold dearest to your heart. The work changes, grows and eventually reaches a rich and powerful climax representing a love that has been shared for most of an adult lifetime.  The work ends simply, quietly, like the holding of hands that were meant to be together sharing a love that is amaranthine.
