Featuring a variety of themes, the strength of this striking arrangement depends upon the contrasts in dynamics, styles and tempos that Caponegro has clearly indicated. While the music is not quite contemporary in style, it is modern enough in concept to allow students the chance to experience alternate treatments of themes and motifs. A perfect choice for any concert venue. Duration 3:40.
