Galactic Conflict by Timothy Loest. For concert band. Concert Band. FJH Developing Band. Full set (score and parts). Score only also available: B1181S. Grade 1.5. Score and set of parts. Duration 2 minutes, 38 seconds. Published by The FJH Music Company Inc (FJ.B1181).
This invigorating work makes great use of percussion. Reminiscent of Holst's famous portrayal of Mars, the driving rhythmic motif is immediately introduced with rhythmic hits reinforced in the upper brass and woodwinds. Several themes are layered for an effect that is easy to achieve with bands at this level. A brief lyrical section provides some creative harmonies which will help develop the musicianship of your band. The opening material then returns for a powerful conclusion. Highly recommended!
