Concerto for violin and large ensemble - solo violin part only. The title Carillon Sky refers to a fantasized image that stimulated me to compose this music — that of a sky full of very soft tinkling and flickering bells, as well as very clamorous pealing, ringing, resonant bells, through which one floats. As if a Cathedral's Bell Tower becomes a metaphor for natures ever changing landscape and the violin soloist is a distinctive bird soaring, interacting, circling and swirling in the resonance. The idea was to try to compose a mini violin concerto, but one that is in fact a "whole piece" — all packed into less than 7 minutes. This is like a miniature etching. — Augusta Read Thomas
