Abracadabra was composed by Frank Ticheli in the summer of 2004, and was orchestrated the following November during a residency at the MacDowell Colony. “The piece is dedicated to my son, and is at once playful and serious, innocent and mischievous. A sense of mystery pervades as the dark key of G minor is balanced by sudden shifts to bright and sunny major keys. Throughout the composition I was thinking about magic, not in an evil or frightening sense, but as a source of fun and fantasy.” (Source: Frank Ticheli)
