Program Note:

 

Agreus and Nomios are two brothers in Greek mythology, sons of Hermes, and follows of the God Pan. In the course of their adventures, they seduced nymphs, hunted game, and acted as shepherds of the woods. This piece evokes the call of their shepherd’s pipes in a pastoral, shifting scene, one that begins slowly and calmly and escalates to the hunt of the day before dying out as night falls again.
