There is no story here, at least none that can be told in this program note. When the band starts up and the dance begins, then the stories unfold.

There are five interconnected musical segments that make up this piece, 5 Dances for Alto Flute and Classical Guitar. This combination of the rich, moody Alto Flute and the caressing to complaining Classical Guitar are a sonic match that I have to thank the late Toru Takemitsu for really making me aware of.
