The stunning artwork of Georgia O'Keeffe is no more apparent than in herfamous 1921 painting entitled Blue and Green Music. Fittingly commissio ned by the Patrick Marsh Middle School in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin (O'Keeffe's birthplace), Samuel Hazo does an amazing job of portraying subtle as well as bold colors into musical terms. Based on a single theme that is manipulated and varied throughout, the piece progresses from delicate mallet percussion effects up to climactic impact points for the entire ensemble. O'Keeffe explained her idea that music could be translated intosomething for the eye. And Mr. Hazo succeeds wonderfully in translating it back into something for the ear!
