Mercury, known as the messenger of the gods, is easily identified by his unique winged shoes (talaria) and hat (petasos). Chasing Mercury depicts exactly that: a playful chase of the winged messenger. By whom? It is up to the young musicians who have the opportunity to bring this work to life. Those who are familiar with Gustav Holst's Mercury will notice the opening motif chasing two themes of Holst's around the rest of the work -- giving Chasing Mercury a second meaning. This fun and playful piece is certain to entertain and delight.
