(2015) Winter Dreams (2015) for concert band is Michael Daugherty's contemporary musical reflection on the creative world of Iowa artist Grant Wood (1891-1942). Composed in memory of Michael's father, Willis Daugherty (1929-2011), the music also reflects on the years when the composer was growing up in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. A lush tapestry of slow moving sonorities unfolds as Winter Dreams evokes the bleak winter scenes of rural Iowa depicted in Grant Wood's paintings and lithographs of the 1930s-1940s, such as January and February. A haunting melody evokes a cold winter wind whistling down in the valley. If you are looking for a soulful, poignant and expressive work to program for your next concert, look no further. Winter Dreams is well suited for bands at the college, high school and community levels.
