Michael Torke, "Grand Central Station"


Grand Central Station

Michael Torke

Born: September 22, 1961, Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Composed: 2000

Duration: 6 minutes

The composer writes,

As I wrote this piece, I thought of the tremendous energy of arrivals and departures, the swirling shapes and patterns of people with optimistic expectations. Newly renovated, Grand Central Station has that wonderful mix of the classically old, along with its shiny, new, welcoming appearance. Like the Goldman Band itself, who commissioned this piece, it has decades of rich, New York history, but it is very much alive today.
