Through a Child's Eyes by Chris M. Bernotas. Concert Band. Concert Band; Score; SmartMusic. Young Symphonic. Form: Ballade. Grade 2. 12 pages. Published by Alfred Music Publishing (AP.36692S).
Through a Child’s Eyes is a composition with reflection on the innocence of a child, the discovery of the world around them and the peacefulness of a sleeping baby. After the somewhat bold introduction, the first theme brings a simple sense of comfort. The trumpets then stand proudly with a feeling of strength and confidence. After a climax we are led to a slightly contemplative section. The ending is filled with a recapitulation of the main theme accompanied with the music box. Rest and comfort come through with the sounding of the final chord.
