Program Notes

Reminiscent of the classic circus march, Quicksilver takes us back to the wild, unbridled early twentieth century circus times. This traditionally styled work in quite rollicking in nature, offering straightforward melodic content and sweeping technical passages from all sections of the ensemble.

The piece immediately demands attention with its audacious introduction and continues with great boldness. Becoming softer at the trio section, the music still maintains drive and intensity before once again assuming its original intrepid style and driving to a dashing finish.
