Exciting woodwind flourishes set the stage for the heroic main motive of the piece, stated by the brass. This theme is woven throughout the piece in contrasting settings, styles, and colors. A beautiful, lyric chamber section gives way to a stately dance presented by the full ensemble. A powerful ending caps this dynamic piece.

    We played this for UIL last year when I was in 7th grade in our top band. It was amazing and definately emotional. We recieved all 1's ofcourse! This brings back memories :)

  • 2007-10-15 00:00:00.0 Very Cool Song

    I am on Top Band and learning this song. It was fantastic! It started out energetic then it gives some mood slow part with solo on the middle creating a very smoothing and relaxing part. Then it got super energetic and flow into a very good ending. I think if...

    you are up for the challenge this will be a great band piece.

    I just played this song this year (sophomore year, high school) and it was great, there's slow beautiful parts and there's fast exciting parts, especially the "rips" the French Horns have at the end! AWESOME SONG!!!
