Program Notes

This piece reflects the title accurately: chaotic, extreme contrasts, and loud. Although it presents several challenges, it is a piece designed to capture the interest of both young musicians and listeners.

-Program Note by publisher


The title of this engaging number is aptly reflected by the piece’s sound and structure. An intense opening section with driving eighth-note patterns and powerful chord “hits” leads to a brief timpani solo that serves as an introduction to a soft, staccato eighth-note line stated initially by the flute section with cabasa accompaniment. Additional lines are added as the piece builds to another energy- filled section featuring new melodic material. An effective contrasting section includes chorale-like passages for woodwind and brass sections before revisiting earlier material as the composition moves to a dynamic conclusion.
