Program Notes

Inspired by a memorable commuter jet trip taken by the composer, Tailspin! is an aggressive and hard hitting composition capturing the peril of an airliner in rapid descent. Contemporary harmonies and driving rhythms contribute to the unique and fresh sound of this work. Varied dynamics and textures add to the drama and make this the perfect concert or festival work for young bands.
