This overture pays tribute to London's lovely and expansive Kensington Gardens. Written in ABA overture form, this piece contains everything needed to be a great contest selection: brisk tutti passages; slow, lyrical, soloist themes; each selection playing an important role; memorable melodies. The Musicianship Studies focus on the rhythmic devices used to make the themes unified and interesting and a study on the use of syncopation is also included.
