Program Notes

Brighten the holidays with this lighthearted theme-and-variations mashup of The Dreidel Song and Hava Nagila. Both of these highly spirited tunes are run through a musically stylistic funhouse, culminating in a breathtaking flurry of high-speed energy. The flying technical passages may be challenging, but this whirlwind presentation is well worth the effort.

- Program Note from publisher


The work was first performed in 2006 by the U.S. Air Force Band.
