Program Notes

This beautifully slow and melodic piece consists of eleven variations built on two eight measure themes. Like many of Mr. Daehn's other pieces for young bands, the technical and range challenges have been eliminated so musicians can concentrate on the musical aspects of creating beautiful sounds. This is truly music meant for the heart.
