Opening with a haunting chorale-like setting the work surges into a fast contemporary section punctuated by sharp brass accents and exciting percussion lines. Lyrical woodwind passages precede a nice middle section which spotlights solos for flute and baritone. The finish is strong and vibrant. "The" contest winner you are looking for.

About Bach Series arranged by Alfred Reed

Masterful settings for concert band by the venerable Alfred Reed, these works have been scored to achieve richness and beauty without detracting from the textural construction created by Bach himself. Marvelous educational and program material!

    Aventura was one of the most thrilling pieces I have played in my regular school band. I played the flute solo in our performance and it was truly amazing. This piece also flaunts the skills of the lower brass players. The piece will teach students how to control dynamics and...

    how to transfer from differnent tempos and styles. It is a must-have for any highschool band.

    Our 8th grade band loves to play this song- we always ask if we can play it in the beginning of class. It has a really cool sound to it and it is really fun to play.
