Larry Coryell: - "This work is intended to touch listeners' hearts with the simple but often-misunderstood message about the sanctity of peace. By "peace" I mean to say not just the absence of violence but a pro-active statement that means: peace is the way. Like so many operas, this work is of a tragic nature. It is the story of Russia's struggle and eventual victory (at great cost) with Napoleon's voracious armed forces in the early 19th century. My heart requests nothing more than just that.
