Alfred Reed, composer
Music in the Air!, subtitled "A Quiet Intermezzo for Winds," was
commissioned as the opening and closing theme for MBS Television in Japan.
The music embodies the idea of arising or falling asleep with the sound of
music in one’s ears, either to greet or to say farewell to a day in one’s life.
Tonight’s performance of this work is dedicated to the memory of the composer
of this work, Alfred Reed, who recently passed away.
