Detailed Description

Short Ride in a Fast Machine (from Two Fanfares for Orchestra). Composed by John Adams (1947-). Arranged by Richard L. Saucedo. For Concert Band (Score & Parts). Boosey & Hawkes Concert Band. Grade 4. Boosey & Hawkes #M051661732. Published by Boosey & Hawkes (HL.48019390).

Composed in 1986, this fast-paced and dynamic work took the symphonic world by storm. Available here in a playable setting for school ensembles, Richard Saucedo transposed the key down a third from the original and skillfully adapted some of the more complicated rhythmic patterns without sacrificing any of the excitement and drive. A wonderful introduction to “minimalist” music and one of America's treasured contemporary composers. Dur: 4:00 – Grade 4 (Boosey & Hawkes).
