Abstract Periphrasis is a work for large chamber orchestra that has been designed for easy adaptation to a full orchestral score. It is the first in a series of works exploring the structural connections between music and language and seeks a semiotic construction of musical narrative through a working metaphor to linguistics and related literary art forms. Periphrasis was composed for the Minneapolis-based CMW Ensemble supported in part by the American Composers Forum through the 2011 McKnight Composer Fellowship Program.
