Please read the composer's note for In Memory of a Summer Day, of which Triumphant Alice is part.
'A Tale Is Told: Triumphant Alice' is an elaborate, extensive March. Like many of my pieces, this movement begins chastely, but grew (Wonderland-style) to alarming proportions. As a boisterous scherzo is to a courtly minuet, so might my ? well ? Super-March seem to more familiar specimens of the genre! Rather than the usual military associations, the piece suggests to me the brightness of mid-day with certainly a blazing sun overhead reflecting dazzlingly, blindingly off the water's surface.
