"The development of LAKES, in large measure, drew directly on the composer's own childhood and adult experiences. Growing up in the 'Land of 10,000 Lakes,' the composer was no stranger to lakes. This intimate realtionship fostered the writing of Lakes.

...the composer also drew upon mystery and legend.

Nearing the end of LAKES, the composer evokes the early morning... images of still, mirror-like waters, a pervading blanket of mist and the sound of canoe paddles slowly and quietly moving through the waters. These elements can create a meditative stillness....

This transcription of LAKES, taken from the original movement in OF MOUNTAINS, LAKES AND TREES, was inspired upon hearing one of the first rehearsals for the symphonic work with the solo trombone and harp alone....

The trombone solo is high and lyrical and a fluid legato and feeling of freedom in the sound is needed for this piece. In the soft ending with the cup mute, it is easy for the trombone to blend with the harp. Attention to balance is essential here...."
