Program Notes

Sparkleberry was composed in 2006 and was awarded the Special Mention Prize at the 26th International Composition Competition for Band in Corciano, Italy.

The work consists of two movements. Sparkleberry is a kind of flower native to the United States. The first movement is very bright in reflection of this title. It contains many colorful fragments of sound which develop in more bright and playful ways. The darker second movement features solo alto and tenor saxophones. Though darker in tone it remains rhythmic and dance-like while featuring dialogue between the instruments.
