Michael Torke, "Grand Central Station"
Grand Central Station
Born: September 22, 1961, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
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.
