Program Notes

Fission for Grade 5 Concert Band explores the fused timbre of a low tuba Bb. The complex acoustic structure of this note is first heard passing through the entire ensemble. Over the following seven minutes, this fused sound is gradually pulled apart, revealing its components. Each family of instruments is highlighted during the fission process, and every member of the band has a solo, before the Bb fuses again at the end.
