Program Notes

Solo Una Volta (Only Once!) is a rollicking galop, which in a brief two minutes flashes the spotlight on every section of the ensemble. According to Ito, it was written because during the week prior to a concert of the Senzoku Gakuen College of Music Freshman Wind Ensemble in June 2007, he "felt something was missing from the encore selections and decided to compose this march ." Since at that time he had a large number of players in the oboe and euphonium sections, he chose to write many of the thematic statements "divisi a tre" in the [text obscured] other sections of the band as well. Ito decided on the title because he assumed that this piece, so tailored for a single concert, would only be played once [text obscured] energy and audience appeal quickly proved him wrong, as the piece has been a longstanding encore favorite of the band.
