Program Notes

A brilliant work in two contrasting sections to be performed without pause. The first section entitled “Cantando” is a flowing, lyrical theme that winds its way throughout the ensemble with a full rich sonority. The “Scherzando” is a bold and exciting movement guaranteed to bring your performance to a dramatic conclusion.

This version of Two Bagatelles for Concert Band is dedicated to the Murray State Wind Ensemble and its conductor, Dennis L. Johnson with warm affection.
