“Journeys is the most substantial instrumental movement of my vocal-instrumental cycle, Ancient Scenes, and is situated as movement V within the overall plan of the work. It begins with a stately opening processional, giving way to a rambunctious allegro that relents only in its final moments. For a program note of the entire cycle, please see the entry for Ancient Scenes. A performance may be viewed beginning at 14.18 on the Ancient Scenes video.” LK

World premiere: April 12, 2014 Tenri Cultural Institute, Washington Square Ensemble; Sharon Harms, soprano, Louis Karchin, conductor
