II. Morning Pasture
IV. Into the Coop
This five-movement setting of a day in the life of a farm begins with the sun rising, gallops through the pasture of horses and cows, wallows with pigs, bleats with goats, visits those clucking chickens, and ends with a hootenanny, or barn dance, that swirls into the darkness of twilight.
Live performance featuring Nanao Yamada, violin, Travis Chapman, violin, Sebastian Simek, viola, and Hannah Hillebrand, cello.
