War can intensify feelings of love, commitment and passion. It can strengthen a human’s determination to live life to the fullest, to make each moment count. Inspired by The Hours Suite by Philip Glass, this is a mesmerizing meditation on human relationships across three movements. 

Each movement brings with it an emotional transition through time. From a place of darkness and human despair through moments of hope and light, as the resolve for strength is upheld. The final movement brings feelings of hope and positivity, as humanity unites to rebuild together.
