Program Notes

Ambush is a work that describes the fight of war, and recounts a flanking ambush set out by soldiers as they close in on a victory. A fiery chord opens the work and is followed by a strict melody which is expressed through precise articulation. Strong harmonies in the brass and bold melodies throughout make this piece a fierce statement of war and victory.
