Program Notes

In this work for band, dark and rich sonorities are contrasted with a lilting, Celtic-flavored melody as it alternates with striking "passages" from the brass. An alto saxophone soloist later adds a haunting quality to the mood, followed by a return of the ethnic and lively drumming heard earlier. This unique and rewarding composition is beautifully paced and skillfully orchestrated.

- Program Note by publisher


Commissioned by the West Islip (NY) High School Band Program, James Krais, Director, in memory of alumnus Anthony Caputo.
