Composed by Michael Sweeney. MusicWorks Grade 3. Concert. Score and parts. Published by Hal Leonard (HL.4001926).
Item Number: HL.4001926
Commissioned by the Iowa Bandmasters Association, this dynamic work from Michael Sweeney is written in three contrasting sections. The opening “Lament” features a plaintive horn melody and expansive harmonies. The mood then shifts to an intensely rhythmic dance using an unusual modal scale. In the final section, the flutes switch to recorders and a driving percussion ostinato figure helps propel this magnificent piece to a dramatic ending. A rewarding and satisfying work from one of today's best composers for young bands.
