Program Notes

King of Kings is a symphonic poem for wind ensemble that translates the imagery described in Percy Bysshe Shelley's "Ozymandias" into music. Some sections of the work are aleatoric and require the players to improvise. Others are very strictly and specifically notated.

The piece was written as an entry into James Madison University's new music for wind ensemble competition.
