Program Notes

This vibrant new concert opener is marked “Allegro moderato.” Following an introductory fanfare, the A theme is played by the trumpets and is immediately repeated with added counterpoint in the flutes and oboes. A more cantabile B theme is introduced by the flutes, clarinets, and tenor saxophones, while a repeat of the A theme features the low brass and low woodwinds, A slower C is played by the flutes and clarinets and then transitions to a rousing coda. This original concert overture is manageable by young musicians, yet it has elements that are relevant to much more challenging literature.
