composer's notes:

"Streaming Green" is a bright, energetic, dancing work filled with several rhythmic melodic motives which are superimposed over ostintato textures. With the exception of a few transitional areas that slow down a bit, the work is largely perpetual motion or "streaming". One of these slower areas is more extended, transitioning back to the opening material. The "green" in the title refers to the view from my studio windows in Spring 2009 as I was writing this music.— N.G.
