Program Notes

Darklands March is a concert march written in a minor mode with slight European influence. The contrasting militaristic 1st half is in stark contrast to the lyrical trio. It also serves as an excellent work for teaching march style, dotted-eighth/sixteenth note rhythms, and motivic development.

Darklands March is the first of several works I intend to write based on my own short stories "The Darklands", about a kingdom of night, darkness, and magic. All of these works will constitute a larger work for concert band, The Darklands Suite.
