IMMIGRANT DREAMS - SCORE

Composed by Timothy Mahr

Description

This work draws its inspiration from the Norwegian immigrant experience in Minnesota. Research into immigrant diaries, local histories and Norwegian folk tunes proved fruitful in preparing for the composing of this work. A four note theme is developed melodically and harmonically throughout the work. The Norwegian folk song, How Can You Forget Old Norway?, is set polytonally against a cyclical ostinato constructed from the four note theme.
