David Shaffer 's most impressive work to date is based on the famous Largo ("Goin' Home") Section of Dvorak's New World Symphony. Contains magnificent writing that provides all sections of the band with equal chances to shine. Especially suited for bands in concert or contest, this exceptional tour-de-force for mature bands is destined to become an important and popular addition to the wind band repertoire. Very Highly Recommended!!

    David Shaffer has to be congratulated on this brilliant setting of Dvorak's Largo. From the outset, the mood of the piece is set and builds to a climax finishing with with the Largo's theme with flourishing winds above. Be careful of the quaver = quaver bars. A great stage...

    or contest piece. It helped my band win the B grade Nationals here in Australia last year.
