Awayday is a lively, upbeat composition that is described as a good “curtain raiser” by the composer. Gorb’s experience as a Broadway musical director asserts itself as jazz rhythmic elements, dazzling sonorities, and humorous motives jump to the foreground.

The composer makes no effort to hide his tributes to West Side Story and Candide, but puts them to effective use in this highly energetic work for winds.

The composition is cast in an extended sonata form.
