Program notes: The Carnival - In 1997, The Carnival won the Kris Getz Composition Award while Ms. Bonacich was completing her graduate studies at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. The award is dedicated to composers who write music for young people. The Carnival presents the refreshing sense of discovery in a child's world. The first movement is full of playful rhythmic energy. The second movement, Dreamlike, depicts a child falling asleep in the arms of a parent, awakened periodically by shimmering interjections. The final movement is inspired by jugglers, fire eaters, and gypsies.
