Program Notes

Experience the life of the 19th-century swashbuckler in this fantastic contest piece! The opening theme, The Pirate Life, recalls the lively dance music of pirates after a hard day. A beautiful and harmonically intricate lyrical section, Island Idyll, captures the peace and solitude of a beautiful sandy beach. What follows is the Wrath of Triton, a powerful storm that threatens the entire crew. Snapping beach towels simulate the sound of sails flapping in the wind during this dramatic voyage at sea.

Buccaneer Hornpipe was commissioned by the Mariner Middle School, Cape Coral, Florida, Gaetano T. Ferlazzo, band director, and dedicated to the school district of Lee County.
