James Swearingen - C L Barnhouse Company
Click to review
Great understanding of, and skill in writing for, young bands are displayed in this challenging yet accessible overture. A very short, legato introduction starts the first section with a bold, memorable first theme in the trumpets which is continued by the upper woodwinds. The low brass, which have been providing a solid, rhythmic accompaniment become more lyrical in the second theme. A nicely contrasting center section in 3/4 follows with a flute section soli,the powerful opening theme then returns and concludes with a dramatic ending. An outstanding work we recommend highly!
