Program Notes: 

Lincolnshire Posy, the iconoclast composer Percy Grainger's seminal work for windsis a suite of what the composer termed "musical wildflowers," his own unorthodox arrangement of folk tunes collected from rural English singers. Later, Jules Strens' Danse Funambulesque gives a musical depiction of the death-defying feats of a high-wire artist.
