Downtown Divertimento

Downtown Divertimento

Series: Amstel Music Publisher: Amstel Music Score & Parts Composer: Johan de Meij

Level: 3

The inspiration for Downtown Divertimento comes from my daily wanderings in Chelsea, in lower Manhattan. The day begins with a leisurely walk to Madison Square Park with our dog Alice. We visit the dog run where she meets up with other city canines. On the way back we have a moment of reflection looking at the nearby Flatiron Building, the striking triangular city landmark. I go for a run later in the day. My jogging shoes naturally head for The Highline, an abandoned railway viaduct that was transformed into a lushly landscaped National Park. I absorb the spectacular views of the Hudson River and the majestic New York skyline as if seeing them for the first time. Downtown Divertimento was commissioned by the Rocky Mountain Commissioning Project. The movements are: 1. Dog Play (at Madison Square Park), 2. Flatiron Reverie, 3. Hitting the Highline.
