Ghost Train - Movement 1 (from Ghost Train Trilogy) composed by Eric Whitacre (1970-). For Concert Band (Score & Parts). Eric Whitacre Concert Band. Published by Hal Leonard (HL.4001838).

The piece that helped launch Eric Whitacre's career in wind band composing! In this highly programmatic work, Eric transforms a story from American folklore of a supernatural locomotive that roars throughout the Western U.S. Rich in special effects and unique compositional techniques, this dynamic piece creates vivid aural images as the train leaves the station and passes through a varied landscape.

  • December 02, 2004 A Truly Amazing Piece.

    I played this piece in my sophomore year of high school two years ago in Symphonic band while I was living in the states. I found it to be a challenging piece, but conquering it was very thrilling. I'd recommend this to any band director that wants to give...

  • July 28, 2004 Amazing

    I had the opportunity to play the first movement of this piece at band camp. I admit it was challenging and we struggled through a few passages at first. The next week we heard a professional ensemble play all of the movements in concert. In fact, they were invited by...

    Eric Whitacre himself to perform Ghost Train, along with a few of his other works (Equus, Noisy Wheels of Joy, Cloudburst, October) at the Sydney Opera House. Ghost Train is a truly breathtaking piece, whether it is being played by a high school band or a group of professional musicians.

  • September 12, 2002 Wow!

    When I was a sophomore in high school three years ago, our conductor handed out this piece and everybody's eyes collectively widened. The music was some of the most challenging any of us had ever played, but in the end it was also the most rewarding. I'm not...

    a huge fan of contemporary music, but "Ghost Train" and its depiction of an actual train going through the woods was amazing! I'd recommend this to anyone.
