Program Notes

Song and Legend is a two-movement work for young band. The Song starts simple and plaintive, gradually becoming more expansive. After a short introspective interlude in mallets and piano, the expansive melody returns for a climactic cadence, then closes simply and quietly. Legend starts out with a heroic fanfare, transitioning to a moodier second theme. The heroic fanfare theme begins to creep back into the texture and eventually takes control through a dramatic finish.
