Allegro Moderato in Ab
Instrumental work for flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, and string orchestra inspired by Cambridge, MA’s Mount Auburn Cemetery in October. Originally commissioned by the Friends of Mount Auburn as part of Mary’s two-year composer residency at Mount Auburn Cemetery.
The piece was composed in the key of Ab (vibrant red, vibrant yellow, jewel-toned blue), and was inspired by a bright autumn day at Mount Auburn Cemetery, in which sudden and frequent gusts of wind carried swirls of colorful leaves across the landscape.
