ImPercynations. (Score Only). By Steven Bryant. Score. Eric Whitacre Concert Band. 26 pages. Published by Hal Leonard (HL.4002113).
Using melodic fragments from each of the six movements of Percy Grainger's Lincolnshire Posy as foils for each other, Steven Bryant has created a unique and brash experiment in musical juxtaposition! Grainger described his work as a bouquet of musical “wildflowers,” and Bryant describes “ImPercynations” as a “genetically-altered, crossbred, hybrid offspring...a musical Franken-flower”. An unconventional gem. (duration: ca. 5:15).
