Program Notes

Commissioned by the Indiana University of Pennsylvania High School Honors Band, Jack Stamp, conductor, in memory of Matthew Hornick.

- Program Note from score


Danza No. 2 (2003) was commissioned by the Indiana University of Pennsylvania IUP High School Honors Band (Jack Stamp, conductor) in memory of Matthew Hornick, a member of the Wind Ensemble at IUP. Matthew tragically passed away in an automobile accident.

Danza is a musical genre that originated in Ponce, a city in southern Puerto Rico. It is a popular turn-of-the-twentieth-century ballroom dance genre slightly similar to the waltz. Although Danza No. 2 was written as a memorial piece, this is unique in that it is highly energetic and vibrant. This work displays vivid contrasts between winds and percussion as it drives relentlessly from start to finish.
