David Shaffer - C L Barnhouse Company
Lots of percussion, as expected, powers this bold composition. The notes are actually very easy at this level, but there's enough independence between sections and in the percussion section to bring it up to the Easy level. Adding to the appeal are big chords, strong melodies and important countermelodies in the woodwinds. Exceptionally appealing in concert, this is also a strong choice for use in contests. Exciting stuff!
