Item Number: A0.914153

Exciting and dramatic short orchestra piece with a wide variety of moods and textures, and a lot of rhythmic drive. The piece has 4 main themes in contrasting styles: Romantic (strings and horns), funky/rhythmic (clarinet), corny (piccolo),  and lyrical (oboe).  All the themes use the same principle notes (D, C sharp, B flat and A) and could be considered "friendly" or "fiendish" depending on your musical taste. At the climactic ending all the themes are layered on top of each other. It was composed for the U. C. Berkeley Orchestra and received an Eisner Prize from the U. C. Berkeley faculty. Duration: 7 minutes. ASCAP 
Instrumentation: 2+picc, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 1, timp, 2 perc (perc 2 can double timp), strings
