Program Notes

James Clifton Williams is regarded as one of the most influential composers of music for concert band in the twentieth century. His work captures an audience immediately. His unique sense of harmonic structuring is evident in Solemn Fugue, as its quiet beginning moves, layering and thickening, to a wonderfully complex multi-voiced conclusion.
