Program Notes

This is the definitive arrangement of Silverado! Scored with composer Bruce Broughton’s blessing, this Randol Bass arrangement will undoubtedly be the highlight of your program. The work feature soaring woodwind lines intertwined seamlessly with bold brass melodic statements.

- Program Note by publisher


The music for the movie Silverado composed by Bruce Broughton was nominated for “Best Sound and Best Original Score” at the Academy Awards for 1985. This wonderfully exciting arrangement of the original theme song from the movie was done in 2008 by Randol Alan Bass.

- Program Note by Lake Oswego Millennium Concert Band concert program, 5 April 2013


Silverado (1985) is the title theme to the 1985 American-Western film, Silverado. The soundtrack to the movie was nominated for an Oscar at the Academy Awards that year.

The piece opens with a “martial and majestic” horn fanfare. In traditional symphonic overture form, the middle section features several solos before the trombone signals the return for the closing section. The original melody is reprised by brass choir in augmentation as the woodwinds and keyboard percussion drive the energy to the finale.
