Program Notes

This work opens with an Andante section that features a haunting minor melody played by clarinets, a strong low brass bass line and assorted counterlines that offer interesting contrast. Cornets repeat the melody that leads to a rallentando pause; a fast-tempo variation emerges. This second upbeat section is in a new key and features the melody played by cornets, then by low brass and woodwinds, over syncopated tutti rhythmic figures.
