Already an established hit with orchestra directors, this superior composition is a welcome addition to the concert band repertoire! The piece is built on a few simple but very effective musical ideas, and infused with extraordinary energy and excitement. As the title suggests, the open-fifth harmony plays an essential and powerful role. There is a modal character to the work, and a delightful lyricism, especially in the middle section. This will be the highlight of your concert or festival performance! Very highly recommended!
