Program Notes

Written in a quick two, this show-style opener lives up to its title -- much of the thematic material in the opening theme falling to the brass while the woodwinds interject flourishes and counterpoints. The woodwinds come to the fore during the middle section until the brass take over again when the original theme returns for a rousing finish.
