All around... dancing is a short piece composed as a wedding recessional for two close friends. Wanting to include musical themes dear to the bride and groom, I based most of the musical material around a ritornello from the Gentle Giant song On reflection, whose main madrigal theme appears toward the end after being deconstructed in the freer sections preceding. A slightly more popular Nordic theme floats in over the final, celebratory cadence.
