Art in the Park is a four-movement work that musically portrays various styles and techniques used in the visual arts. Musical representations of high energy cubism, dreamy impressionistic aquarelle, the nobility and subtle shadings of chiaroscuro, and a percussion ensemble’s rendition of a sgraffito are included, with the orchestration designed to depict the style of the brushstrokes in each painting. This is a very unusual piece with highly diverse content! (8:30)

    "Art in the park" by Robert Sheldon has to be my favorite piece I have played in band. You'll find the first and third movements most likely to be your favorites. Second and fourth movements are very slow but beautiful. [Great for flutes] Third movement is ALL ABOUT PERCUSSION...

    , the bell part is beautiful and the marimba part is very interesting. First movement is sort of tricky even though in easy 4/4 time random rests and beat blocks occur making a slight challenge for a group. Very mysterious and chase sounding. All toghether the piece is unique and beautiful.
