Program Notes

This new concert overture by young composer Aaron Blakely is reminiscent of the great Western movie score genre. It has the bold open intervals of the American sound made famous by Aaron Copland along with a very memorable melody and driving rhythms. The main theme of the piece is contrasted by a lush and lyrical middle section that builds to a wonderful climax before the return of the driving main theme.
