Steal the Thunder by Rob Grice. For concert band. FJH Young Band. Full set (score and parts). Score only also available: B1287S. Grade 2. Score and set of parts. Composed 2006. Duration 2:00. Published by The FJH Music Company Inc (FJ.B1287).
Steal the Thunder was conceived as a concert work to be performed by young concert bands. Every effort has been made to give younger players the experience of performing a mature-sounding composition while keeping technical demands well within their reach. Tempo should be vibrant and exciting with much energy through the entire composition. Much attention should be given to producing a balanced ensemble sound; percussion should avoid overplaying. Maintain the energy and drive to the very last note!
About FJH Young Band
Appropriate for middle school and smaller high school groups. Second clarinets usually stay below the break. Parts are written with more independence, and instrumentation increases slightly. There is still adequate doubling in the lower voices. Grades 2 - 2.5
