Program Notes

This exciting overture features plenty of power and musical depth. Originally a work for brass quintet, it wasn't until many years later that the full band version took shape.

- Program Note by publisher


Although fairly brief in duration, this exciting overture features plenty of power and musical depth. It was originally written for brass quintet, and it wasn’t until many years later that the full band version was written. The opening melody sweeps across the audience, taking each listener on a beautiful journey. One may envision themselves gliding over a vast and open valley or sweeping though a redwood forest. The second section gives way to a soaring melody in the oboe with the gentle trickle of percussive bells. Clarinet and euphonium develop this melody, with trumpets joining in for a triumphant return to the original theme. The ensemble returns with the opening fanfare for a brilliant conclusion to this new and exciting composition.
