Originally composed in 1937, the overture contains a pulsating and driving rhythmic force which is balanced by the flowing secondary theme. As Hunsberger describes, “the orchestral colors are in a class of their own, ranging from overwhelming fortissimos to chamber effects to raucous splashes of wind and percussion energy.”.
