Program Notes

This impressive work begins and ends with a unifying fanfare theme. The contrasting middle section presents traditional melodic material with modern-sounding rhythms and harmonies. A rewarding work with a unique and timeless quality for today's bands!

This impressive work by Samuel Hazo begins and ends with a unifying dramatic and powerful fanfare theme. In contrast, the middle section is built around faster and modern-sounding rhythms and harmonies, while incorporating traditional melodies (including a hint of Bach's Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring) lending a unique and timeless quality to the music. Commissioned as a tribute from one band director to his predecessor, this is a rewarding and effective work for today's bands.
