Love Transformingfor Wind Ensemble

Gorb, Adam

On a day, alack a day! Love, whose month is ever May, Spied blossom passing fair, Playing in the wanton air. Love Transforming is an extended slow movement charting the progress from strident despair to peaceful fulfilment through the expressions and emotions associated with love, isolation, confusion, turbulence, resolve, poignancy and finally rapture. Materials in the piece are not developed, simply presented from different angles and include lines from Shakespeare's 'Love Labour's Lost' sung by two female members of the ensemble: 'Love whose month is ever May'; but in this instance the love is not lost but gained.
