Program Notes

Another outstanding festival/concert selection, this exciting and highly playable work opens with strong rhythmic brass joined by contrasting woodwinds as the work develops. The cantabile section features melodic solos for flute and clarinet and later woodwind choir before combining with the brass for a beautiful slow section. This work concludes with a recapitulation and a driving rhythmic ending.
