Not too long ago, my wife and I took our three boys to see the Boston Symphony. The orchestra performed Rachmaninoff on the grounds of Tanglewood, and as the wind carried the concert passed our seats and across the Berkshires, we found ourselves captivated by the beautiful combination of the music, setting, and family. Harvest the Wind is my homage to that day. For the performer, the tempo should not be considered a static element. Moments of musical interest will pass between each hand; with that in mind, tempo can fluctuate within each hand to create musical nuance.
