"Chasing Brilliance" is a one-movement work for orchestra that shares the clarity and grandiosity of Classical era symphonic works with adventurous contemporary harmonies and driving rhythmic energy. It is a metaphor for overcoming the struggles we encounter in life (represented by the minor key) as we strive towards the light at the end of the tunnel, ever chasing the glimmer of hope (which at times seems elusive, like the fleeting lyrical sections) and beating the obstacles in our path. Always driving forward, climbing, grasping, chasing the dream that is just out of reach.
