Fires of Mazama

http://www.sheetmusicplus.com/title/fires-of-mazama-sheet-music/5930609

Concert Band (Score & Parts) - Grade 1.5
Composed by Michael Sweeney. MusicWorks Grade 1. Score and parts. Published by Hal Leonard (HL.4002347).

Item Number: HL.4002347

Aleatoric music for grade 1? Why not?! Through carefully controlled parameters, your beginning players can actually create their own erupting volcano effect! Mazama was the imposing mountain peak in southwest Oregon that erupted 7000+ years ago and became the serene and beautiful present day Crater Lake. Fires of Mazama opens with bold sounds and powerful melodies before the “eruption” changes everything. Afterwards, a calm chorale leads to the exciting final strains in this ingenious and impressive piece for beginners! Dur: 3:20.

  • January 02, 2011 Fantastic

    I played this in a band at Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp. It's a fantastic sounding piece, one that can really shock the audience if played correctly. But if an instrument plays too early, or too late, then it sounds horrible. That's the only challenging thing about it...

    This piece is the best i have ever played. When you get everyone to come in on time and play the right dinamic it sounds so cool. When you get the whole band together it sounds so hard but it is pretty easy.

  • October 20, 2007 great song!

    This song is great for middle school bands. It's fun energetic and exciting! As a band director myself I have to say that the dynamics and the way this piece is written will make you feel as if you are running from the volcano.

  • May 15, 2007 INCREDIBLE

    I'm a student from Rosedale Middle School (8th) and I just loved this song. It was well written and fun to play. When all the instruments get together it sounds so good. The drum parts were very fun (I play percussion, have been for only 3 years). The volcano...

    eruption part really gets you pumped.
