Quick Overview

Cold Fusion is a dramatic piece for string orchestra that alternates a syncopated fanfare with a bold, yet lyrical theme. These contrasting ideas chase each other throughout the piece and their basic nature should be emphasized. The syncopated figure rarely goes away altogether and should be felt under the lyrical theme when they appear together, without becoming too prominent. Performers should pay particular attention to the places where this rhythm blossoms into a restatement of the fanfare to bring this connection out. Reserve enough energy for a big ending. In particular, allow the piece to build into the biggest moment from m. 103 to the end. The title alludes to the idea of a massive amount of energy being unleashed through fairly simple means.
