Originally composed for Anne Akiko Meyers and then orchestrated for Marin Alsop's 20th season at the Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music, this lovely lyric work was transcribed for band under the composer's supervision. Accessible to musicians and audiences, yet extremely sensitive with its dramatic sonorities, the music is both soothing and subtle even as the tonality is stretched.

While some of his other major works for winds, including Gazebo Dances and Circus Maximus, are at an extreme level of difficulty, his collaboration with arranger Peter Stanley Martin in Lullaby for Natalie resulted in a stunning transcription intended to be playable by the typical high school band.… Although the technical demands remain modest, deftly traversing the colorful, yet often sparse, orchestration demands sensitivity. Expressive solo lines in the flute, oboe, trumpet, and euphonium also require finesse. While the harp part is optional, conductors who do not have access to one may wish to consider using a synthesized version to invoke its ethereal qualities. Lullaby for Natalie is the perfect piece to provide a blissful moment of repose on a concert program.
