Program Notes

This three movement suite is ideal for concert or festival performances. In the usual fast-slow-fast format, the movements are titled The Phantom Drummer, A Lady's Lament and Virginia Two-step.

-Program Note by composer


Depicting three contrasting and intriguing settings from early American lore, Rick Kirby masterfully brings these images to life in a suite for band. The first movement tells the legend of The Phantom Drummer with unique orchestrational effects. The second movement, The Lady's Lament, mourns the loss of loved ones in the Revolutionary War, and the suite concludes with the lively dance Virginia Two-Step. Rich in stylistic and tonal variety, this is an appealing work for concert or festival use.
