Diabolique by Jared Spears. Concert band. Young Concert Band. Command Series. Grade 1.5. Extra conductor score. Composed 1984. Published by C.L. Barnhouse (CL.011-1747-01).
Another dramatic and exciting contest work for the young band by the composer of the best selling "Furious Fable" and "Thunder Mountain Overture." This piece opens with a majestic burst of color, proceeds to an allegro section containing contrasting moments of mystery and drama with an underlay of driving percussion resulting in a real Spears "barnburner.".
