Program Notes

Serenata begins with the theme in minor accompanied by a Latin American rhythm and then changes to a bright mood in a major key. Just when we are carried away by the soaring melody and repetitive rhythm, Anderson makes use of a strategically placed pause to recapture our attention. The composer's skill in arranging his original orchestrations for band is shown in every phrase of Serenata.
