Programme Notes / Performance Details :There are three recordings of this piece, two by Mark Ford with The North Texas Wind Symphony with Eugene Corporon conducting (Klavier Records), and another by Michael Burritt (Northwestern University). This piece was commissioned by the publisher Cort McClaren (C. Alan Publications) and the School of Music at the University of North Carolina, Greensboro and premiered at the Southeast chapter of the Music Educators National Conference in Raleigh, North Carolina. The soloist was Michael Burritt, professor of percussion studies at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL. The lush outdoors of northwestern Michigan`s lower peninsula directly inspired the first and third movements, respectively "Deer Hunting in Michigan" and "The Stuff of Adventure." McCarthy developed a strong attachment to this region, being born in Onekoma, Michigan, growing up in Bay City, Michigan, and attending the Interlochen Art Academy during his High School years. While at the Interlochen Arts Academy he studied trumpet and piano for four years. McCarthy dedicated this composition to his trumpet teacher at Interlochen, John Lindenau. McCarthy chose the title "Chamber Symphony" to indicate that "the wind ensemble is more intimately involved (musically speaking) with the soloist than a accompaniment as in a concerto. In this regard, the single winds and marimba are treated integrally although the marimba is the featured instrument.
