River Ice (Winter) by Tobin Mueller, 1st movement of "The New England Suite" for piano; from Disc 2 of "Flow: The Music of J.S. Bach and Tobin Mueller".
A driving yet gentle chord progression combines the restless/purposeful movement of New Englanders with the seasonal grace of its mild winters. The rhythms also harken back to New England's American Indian roots, in a stylized way. The shifting meters are like patches of river ice, conforming to the shoreline, then breaking off into the current, melting, changing shape. Starting in winter, I move through the seasons with each movement of the suite...
This piece was written in response and with inspiration from J. S. Bach's Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 in G Major.
