The Explorers of Orion

By Naoya Wada

Detailed Description

The Explorers of Orion composed by Naoya Wada. Concert band. Young Concert Band. Command Series. Audio recording available separately (item CL.WFR336). Overture. Grade 2.5. Score and set of parts. Composed 2005. Duration 4 minutes, 15 seconds. Published by C.L. Barnhouse (CL.011-3436-00).

An exceptional debut composition by a teenaged Japanese composer, it's a very impressive work that is going to be a big hit with bands everywhere. The opening movement features lively rhythms and tuneful melodies and includes an energy which will appeal to students and audiences alike! A delightful slower section includes solos for flute and trumpet which lay very well for those instruments. All in all, it's an effective piece that is a great concert or festival choice and an excellent teaching piece for any mid-level band. This one is special!
