In Dreams explores the powerful and surreal experience of the crossover between dreams and reality. With subtle shifts in colour and texture, tender and soaring melodies, and driving ostinatos, the piece introduces intermediate to advanced bands to elements of minimalism and provides musical challenges for all sections of the ensemble. In Dreams takes players and listeners on an emotional and musical journey full of hope and yearning, from deep sleep to a world of dreams and back again.
