Composer's note:  “from the Grotte des Combarelles was composed in Yaddo in 1978 to celebrate the marriage of Christine Day and Brian Israel. The piece takes its title from the cave in the Dordogne region of France filled with some of man’s earliest art. The one-movement work begins and ends quietly, the two outer sections are separated by a fast middle section.” The work was revised in July, 1980.
