This piece was one of the pieces written for the Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestra. It wasn't the original piece to be played for that concert, so when I decided to change it had to be completed very quickly; I wrote this piece in 5 days. It's inspired by the otherworldliness of the International World's Fair in Paris of 1867; the first movement, "Ballet" contrasts the second "Le festival sauvage" in the initial discovery of the new world, versus the wild fun to be had, and the return home. It has its problems as a result of its quick deadline, but I think it's one of the most programmatic and passionate things I've written.
