Lament for Old Earth - A New Beginning - Struggle for New Earth - Finale: Finding Home

Old Earth Suite was started a number of years ago but truly came together in mid-2014. As I was pulling together the orchestration, I found out that a very close friend of mine was dying of cancer. This suite is dedicated to her, though she never had a chance to hear it performed.

At its most basic, the Old Earth Suite is a science fiction story. The world has been destroyed, or abandoned. The opening lament reflects on the Earth that Was, full of wonder and life. The second movement, A New Beginning, depicts a small group of people sitting around a campfire, finding joy in a simple dance. Struggle for New Earth is about the stories of different people, sometimes working together, sometimes separately, all working towards the New Earth. The Finale is the triumph of a journey completed, a new home.

On a deeper level, the Old Earth Suite is also the story of a life. Replace the word 'Earth' with 'Life'. It represents a journey through difficult times, when hope was fading, but in the end we triumph once again.

The world premiere of the Old Earth Suite was performed by the Noosa Orchestra in September 2015.
