Matterhorn Overture uses angular melodic lines, colorful harmonies, exciting rhythms and bold dynamic contrasts to create musical impressions of the Alps' mighty Matterhorn. Through a creative combination of these and many other devices, the composer gives this accessible work a mature sound, making it an ideal selection for young band festival or concert performance.
