Although a chemical element on the periodic table, Krypton is also a fictional planet in comic book lore that explodes just after the escape by our favorite super hero. Robert W. Smith's "Escape From Krypton" captures the energy and suspense of the dramatic event. Biting dissonance, driving percussion and a soaring flight theme combine to create a musical experience your beginning band students will love to rehearse and perform. Composed using the 8-note range of the Bb concert scale, this exciting new piece can be performed in the second semester of study in most band methods. Exciting and educationally sound!
