Program Notes

Sunstorm is a virtuoso fanfare intended as a concert opener. It demands accomplished technical skill, particularly from the horns, low brass and percussion. The work was originally scored for brass choir and percussion and later transcribed for full band.

Sunstorm is based on two principal themes: a rhythmic motive in the Lydian mode and a broad lyrical melody introduced over flowing polychords. These ideas are combined in counterpoint at the climax of the composition.

The band transcription was premiered by the Fort Hays State University Wind Ensemble in December of 2004 and subsequently performed at the Kansas Music Educators Association All-State Convention in 2005.
