Item Number: CL.011-3484-00

A exceptionally nice composition for developing bands that utilizes a set of variations based on an eight bar melodic motive. All sections get chances to shine and the contrasts between the individual variations give the piece a distinct sound which is both appealing and educational. An impressive composition for this grade level that is a superlative choice for any concert or contest performance.
