Contemporary harmonies and interesting colors are at the center of this innovative work. While well within the ability of young musicians, this piece has an uncharacteristically mature sound that will captivate your audience. After a mesmorizing lyrical opening, percussion begins the savage dance that grows more and more powerful as the piece progresses. Optional percussionists throughout the audience can enhance the entire experience as the dancers continue till utter exhaustion and collapse to the ground. Very compelling! (4:10).

About FJH Young Band

Appropriate for middle school and smaller high school groups. Second clarinets usually stay below the break. Parts are written with more independence, and instrumentation increases slightly. There is still adequate doubling in the lower voices. Grades 2 - 2.5
