Program Notes

General Lee and General Grant are represented by their own themes in this expressive tone poem for band. The story of the Appomattox Courthouse meeting between the two military greats is one of extraordinary human drama, and Curnow effectively illustrates the heartbreaking trial and, finally, dignity experience by all involved. Field drum percussion and straight-muted trumpets and trombones give this an authentic historical sound.
