Description A Single Step takes its inspiration from a familiar and contemporized Chinese proverb, “a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step,” which comes from a revered literary classic written by the notable Chinese philosopher, Laozi.  Giving musical expression to this practical wisdom, A Single Step starts with a simple theme scored sparsely, which gains in momentum and energy as it hastens its pace to an exciting and triumphant conclusion.  It is surely a piece to delight both performers and audiences everywhere as it brings to us images of a mission into space, or a long cattle drive somewhere in the Old West, or perhaps a voyage across the oceans to seek new lands and new beginnings.
