Commissioned by the Pittsburgh Orchestra and dedicated to composer David Stock, Ravan is the Persian word for "flowing." The work is a short scherzo with a fast first section alluding to the turbulent white waters of the Youghiogheny River in Pittsburgh, a calmer middle section, like a trio, and a recapitulation of the fast section.
