Dan Locklair's Symphony No. 1, completed in January 2002, was inspired
by The Seasons, a collection of poems by eighteenth century British poet
James Thomson. The work was the result of an orchestral consortium
commission led by the Louisville Orchestra and was funded in part by the
Copying Assistance Program of the American Music Center. It was given
its World Premiere in October 2002 by Maestro Uriel Siegel and the
Louisville Orchestra and was also performed by the North Carolina Symphony
led by Maestro Jeffrey Pollock in March 2004.
