Hidden World is a dynamic composition for the beginning band, containing great performance and teaching opportunities. The opening motive is loosely based on the first gesture in Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1. In the concerto, that gesture is very heroic, but also explores a more mysterious side. An excellent choice for contest or festival.
