This concert overture for winds was inspired by the poem Atalanta in Calydon, written in 1865 by English poet Algernon Charles Swinburne. It is a recreation in modern verse of an ancient Greek tragedy. American composer Reed wrote this work in 1980, in which he sought to capture in music the dual elements of the poem – high-spirited youthful jauntiness and the innocence of tender love. --James Huff 04:56, 18 May 2009 (UTC) (from the program notes of The Claremont Winds, submitted with permission)
