Concert Band - Level 3 - Digital Download

SKU: A0.814737

Composed by Richard E Brown. Contemporary. 149 pages. Dacker Music #3029427. Published by Dacker Music (A0.814737).

Adirondack Sketches was commissioned by the Town of Lake Pleasant, which is located in the southern Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York, to celebrate its bicentennial. Written for the local community band (named "A Pretty Good Band," Amy Winnie, director), it consists of four short movements, descriptive of my memories of places in and around my home town:

            1. Sunrise over Lake Pleasant
                A gradual expansion of sound based on the horn call at m. 3 brings the
                lakeshore from predawn darkness to brilliant sunlight.

            2. School Picnic at Moffit Beach
                A march/scherzo expresses the end-of-school exuberance of the school children.

            3. Canoeing on Kunjamuck Creek
                A gently flowing passacaglia, with hints of arch form, depicts the calm, wooded creek.

            4. Hiking up Hamilton Mountain
                An insistent ostinato bass suggests plodding footsteps as a fugue unfolds above, taking
                a group of excited hikers up the trail to the lookout atop the mountain.

The price includes license to make as many copies of each part as necessary.
