Program Note:
A “scirocco” is a warm or hot wind, originating in North Africa and moving over the Mediterranean. It typically occurs within the warm sector of a cyclone. My piece was inspired by images of this wind whirling around, now violent, now moving in smaller eddies. It was commissioned by, and is dedicated to, pianist Mary Kathleen Ernst –JS
