Item Number: HL.8724364

MusicWorks – Grade 1

Rarely does any single publication have such an effect on band literature as this unique and striking composition from 1994. Individually, the parts are relatively simple. Yet the combined effect is sophisticated and impressive far beyond its easy level. Michael uses a wealth of contemporary devices (including tone clusters, recorders, singing, pencil tapping) to create an aura of prehistoric times. This new edition includes a full recording and is a must for every program. (3:45).

    I play flute in a middle school band, so I get to do a lot of the new, different parts. Like the recorder, the singing, and tapping my pencil on the music stand. This is my favorite piece of music I've played all year. I LOVE IT! I can...

    't wait until we play it in a concert!
