Program Notes

Depicting the beautiful landscapes of the San Andreas terrain, this sweeping work begins with a sparkling introduction, mirroring the sun exploding out of the mountainous vistas. Soaring and robust, the main theme is first stated in the horns and then passed on to the trumpets. A calmer lyric section features soloistic dialogues in the woodwinds, and after a brief recap the work culminates in a dynamic and riveting conclusion.

- Program Note from publisher

This single-movement programmatic overture depicts the beautiful landscapes of the San Andreas terrain in Palm Springs, California. Commissioned by and dedicated to the Desert Winds Freedom Band, this multi-sectioned composition opens with a majestic nine-measure fanfare at a slow tempo before settling into much faster section in at a faster tempo. This faster section highlights the horn section and the trumpets. Following this, a slower, lyrical section features the woodwinds, and then a transition capturing the opening fast section concludes this energetic work.
