Composer's Notes

This piece was a commission from Canberra Festival of Women's Music in 2001, written for Canberra Wind Soloists. I thought it fitting to pay tribute to Chopin's muse and a strong woman, writer Georges Sand. There is a quote from one of Chopin's waltzes in the most reflective middle part of the piece.
A short chord sequence from this piece became the main material for the movement "Green Leaf Prelude" of the Concert Suite "Wild Swans" in 2003.
