Sylvan Spirits

for Lyric Soprano and Chamber Orchestra
( 2 , 2 , 2 , 2 - 4 , 2 , 0 , 0 - 2 Perc , Hp - Str )

Composed by Scott Ninmer

In an age where deforestation remains a large environmental and ecological problem throughout the world, "Sylvan Spirits" was written to bring awareness to this plight by capturing the haunting and mystical beauty of the woods in several settings. The soprano's text is derived from three famous poems written in tribute to the woods. Beginning with a light-hearted rendition of Anne Brontë's "Lines Composed in a Wood on a Windy Day", the piece moves into a more somber mood for Rudyard Kipling's "The Way Through the Woods". Finally, the piece closes on a mysterious note with Robert Frost's "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening", reflecting the uncertainty of the future of our world's forests. Alternate versions for baritone with orchestra and narrator with orchestra are available upon request.

The Wind in the Willows

for Symphony Orchestra
( 2 , 2 , 2 , 2 - 4 , 2 , 3 , 1 - Timp , 3 Perc , Hp - Str )

Composed by Scott Ninmer

Based on the children's book "The Wind in the Willows" by Kenneth Grahame, the first four sections of the piece ("Spring Cleaning", "The River", "Toad Hall", "Wild Wood") feature a tale from each individual character and location. Each character is given a theme that is presented in their corresponding tale. The "Wind in the Willows" motive (first played by the horns in the opening fanfare) is woven into each of these character's themes, and also recurs independently in various guises throughout. All four themes ultimately come together in the "The Fight for Toad Hall", and the piece comes to a close with Toad's glorious victory banquet.
