ArtsNash: Between Hills Briefly Green

September 17, 2013

The Gateway Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Gregory Wolynec, played Troy’s Between Hills Briefly Green in Clarksville and Nashville this week. ArtsNash wrote:

Wolynec is a native Vermonter, so he brought Troy Peters’ Between Hills Briefly Green back to Tennessee as a kind of souvenir. Peters found inspiration for his piece in the Green Mountains, which provide only “ninety days of frost free weather.” The music struck me as being Coplandesque, a combination of Americana folk and dance music, and a beautiful blend of popular and high culture. Gateway played this music with immediacy and vitality.
