“The Dark Glass Sinfonia” feels for me like an unfolding journey through life and the mind. It begins in dark, ambiguous mists that gradually part to allow the light of harmony and direction shine. As we move toward that light, we gain a sense of confidence and spontaneity, and there seems to be an eager bounce in our step as we meet friend and foe and explore the complicated world around us. Finally, approaching the end of the work, we look back and try to make sense of all that we’ve experienced, encountering the grand, open expanse of consciousness that grants us an outlook of wonder.
