The first movement, 'Elegy: For All of the Fallen,' is a beautifully powerful chorale that builds to a glorious climax before calming again. The second movement, 'In Resolution: Toward the Final Victory,' captures the brute force of the battle and drives all the way to the end in this fitting homage.

Band Music. Grade 4. Score only. Duration 9:00. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.05321). With Heart & Voice was commissioned by Apple Valley High School Bands, Scott A. Jones, director (Apple Valley, Minnesota), to commemorate the 25th year of existence of this high school. Apple Valley High School's strong commitment to the arts was a major factor in my decision to take on this commission. After visiting the school in December of 2000 and meeting many of the students, faculty, and administrators, I became greatly inspired.Thematically, the work is based on the Apple Valley High School Alma Mater, an old Spanish hymn which has made its way into most church hymnals under the name of "Come, Christians, Join to Sing." It is perhaps fate that this hymn, a particular favorite of mine, happens to be the tune used for the Alma Mater. Christian Henry Bateman wrote the words for the hymn in 1843 and the first verse contains the line, "Let all, with heart and voice, before his throne rejoice." Hence, the title, With Heart and Voice. What better way to celebrate 25 years of this great high school than with our "hearts" and "voices." The "voice" in this case is the music and the "heart" is the emotion that the music renders in celebration. Although the work is largely celebratory in nature, it begins with a feeling of reticence and apprehension, much like the beginnings of Apple Valley High School. It was at one time only an idea or perhaps only a sketch in the mind of the architect. Small fragments of the Alma Mater are heard in the opening moments of the piece. The piece gains momentum, texture and volume in this opening section culminating in a dramatic statement of the first four notes of the theme. A calmness follows and a lyrical flute solo enters. This new material represents the uniqueness of the "mission" of a new school which will have roots in academic excellence and commitment to the visual and performing arts. The euphonium echoes the flute and soon more instruments join in and the section culminates with a dramatic fanfare. This is followed by a transitional section with much dissonance and rhythmic activity, equated to the challenge of bringing life to this new school. A glorious statement of the Alma Mater follows signifying the dedication of Apple Valley High School, twenty five years ago. The ensuing section begins as a fugue with underlying unsettling rhythmic activity in the percussion. The obvious reference of this section is the challenge-maintaining the goals and mission of the high school. The section becomes frantic and desperate, but soon subsides into peacefulness. The peacefulness is stated by the marriage of the "Alma Mater " theme and the "Mission" theme. . .after all, for the High School to survive, it must never forget its mission. An extended finale follows which celebrates both themes in playful, joyful, and dramatic exuberance.

Chamber Symphony No. 2 for Bassoon (Bassoon Feature). By Daniel McCarthy. Arranged by A. Dancy. Chamber Ensemble. For Solo Bassoon, Chamber Winds & Percussion (solo bassoon, flute, oboe, soprano saxophone, clarinet in Bb, bass clarinet, bassoon, horn in F, percussion (maracas, temple blocks, suspended cymbal, tam tam, bongos, castanets, triangle), marimba (4.5-octave), double bass). Medium difficult. Score only. Duration 16:00. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.05861). Chamber Symphony No. 2 for Bassoon and Winds was commissioned for Barrick Stees by the Michigan State University Bands, John Whitwell, Conductor. This piece follows the format of McCarthy's Chamber Symphony (No. 1) for Marimba and Winds, a virtuosic composition for solo instrument and chamber ensemble that has more musically involved accompaniment than implied by the term "concerto."Daniel McCarthy met Barrick Stees as a colleague at the Interlochen Summer Arts Festival (Interlochen Arts Camp, Interlochen, Michigan) in the summer of 1995. Since that time, McCarthy and Stees have worked together on numerous recording and performance projects - most recently, the recording of another commissioned work of McCarthy's by Stees, All the West Was Moving (Centaur Records: Barrick Stees and The Arianna String Quartet).For Chamber Symphony No. 2, McCarthy prefers the multi-movement format, six movements of varying lengths. Similar to some of Beethoven's late string quartets, McCarthy uses two shorter movements as introductions to others, namely the two "Interludes." The outer two movements are programmatic, whereas the interior movements are much more classically conceived.Movement 1: "Stomp and Buc Dance"Having grown up in Northern Michigan, McCarthy has a special affinity for the autumn season. Several of his teachers from the Interlochen Academy (where McCarthy graduated in 1974) are avid hunters. The deer-hunting season for many in northern Michigan is sacred. One hears of the so-called "deer camps" where hunters have wild parties (far enough from their hunting sites as to not "spook" the animals).McCarthy imagines Deer, Buck, and Elk parties at the end of hunting season, when the animals, after another season of successfully avoiding the hunters' bullets and arrows, dance wildly around their own camp fires, drinking deer-beer and mocking the hunters in the dim fire light.Movement 2: "Interlude""Interlude" introduces a softer, darker, less humorous music than the first movement. It offers a transition to a much less programmatic third movement in comparison to the first.Movement 3: "Mechanique""Mechanique" is a study in angular intervals for the solo bassoon. The rhythmic animation in the solo with the motoric doublebass and marimba accompaniments give the music a mechanical sound that is (perhaps) associated with an etude.Movement 4: "Interlude: Creep"The second "Interlude," this time with the subtitle: "Creep" is inspired by the second movement of J. S. Bach's Suite No. 3 in D Major (Air on the G String). The inspiration for this interlude is textural: a long, sustained melody in the treble above a punctuated, quasi-jazz pizzicato bass and marimba bass line that "creeps" and crawls its way beneath the ensemble. It is the only movement without the bassoon solo.Movement 5: "Static"A somewhat improvisational, rhapsodic sounding piece, "Static" is a study in repeated notes and fast tonguing for the wind instruments. The "static" repetition of pitches creates a percussive effect that is juxtaposed with a mosaic of wide-interval motives.Movement 6: "Fire, Dance, and Wahbekanetta"This movement, like the first, is about wild-eyed, nocturnal parties in Michigan's northern wood. In 1969, the composer attended the National Music Camp as a trumpet player and later, the Interlochen Arts Academy from 1970-1974. He later joined the faculty of Interlochen Arts Camp in 1995. McCarthy was born very near Interlochen, in a small village of Onekoma on Portage Lake. The summer is the time for the composer to return to the land of his youth, a chance to escape the rigors of academe, to be with friends. Memories.

Chamber Symphony No. 3 for Clarinet. (Clarinet Feature). By Daniel McCarthy. For Solo Bb Clarinet & Chamber Ensemble (Solo Bb Clarinet, Flute, Oboe, Bb Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, Bassoon, F Horn, Bb Trumpet, Trombone, Tuba, Percussion 1-2 (crotales, suspended cymbal, low tom, timbales, bongos, temple blocks, finger cymbals, maracas, timpani, shaker), Piano, Violin I, Violi). Medium difficult. Score only. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.08601). Chamber Symphony No. 3 was written for the Cleveland Chamber Symphony and clarinetist Kristina Belisle. This is the third work by McCarthy titled "Chamber Symphony" written for a soloist and chamber group. The term is used instead of "concerto" due to a more virtuosic approach to the ensemble writing so that ensemble and soloist are intimately involved. Chamber Symphony No. 1 for Marimba and Winds and Chamber Symphony No. 2for Bassoon and Winds are recorded on Klavier Records by the North Texas Wind Symphony conducted by Eugene Corporon. The six movements were written during a dark period of the composer's life involving several family deaths and deep personal struggle. The second movement, Holy Ghost, is a remembrance of McCarthy's mother, a strong woman of faith who died in the summer of 2002. A Voice in the Dark depicts the reality of living with the specter of those who have passed. TanzMusik, a lively dance movement, is perhaps a bit sarcastic. It is about trying to dance the lively dance in the midst of profound doubt and struggle.

Directed by David Gillingham and Nico Schuler, the ICNM is dedicated to the creation, performance, and research of new music in piblic schools, private schools and universities.In keeping with ICNM's mission, Awakenings exploits a 20th century tonal system not commonly found in the repertoire for younger bands: the octatonic collection. Also known as a "diminished" scale, it is a series f alternating whole and half steps. totaling eight pitches. Common in the music of Bartok, Stravinsky, , and Messiaen, as well as in jazz improvisation and film scores (including Danny Elfman), the appeal of an octatonic collection lies in its unusual combination of available sonorities.

Keep Silence by David Gillingham. For Concert Band (Piccolo, Flute 1/2, Oboe 1/2, Bassoon 1/2, Bb Clarinet 1, Bb Clarinet 2/3, Bass Clarinet, Eb Alto Saxophone 1/2, Bb Tenor Saxophone, Eb Baritone Saxophone, Bb Trumpet 1, Bb Trumpet 2/3, F Horn 1/2, F Horn 3/4, Trombone 1, Trombone 2, Bass Trombone, Euphon). Maestro Band Series. Grade 4. Score only. Duration 8:00. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.09631). "Keep Silence" is a fantasy for band to the tune known as "Picardy," a French carol melody. The tune is found in most Protestant hymnals with the words taken from the 4th century liturgy of St. James. The fluctuation between minor and major tonality and the fluctuation between awe and wonder reflected by the words make this hymn particularly attractive. The fantasy attempts to show a broad range of mood from wonder and mysteriousness to awe and celebration.The work begins mysteriously with ascending and descending D-Aeolian (natural minor) lines in the clarinet which give way to the hymn tune presented by solo flute, solo muted trumpet, and bells. The modal passages eventually lead to a transition leading to a presentation of the hymn by the trombone choir accompanied by anxious sixteenths in the flutes, clarinets and keyboard percussion which are based on motivic material from the hymn tune. The timpani interjects some dramatic statements between phrases. This leads to a rather aggressive statement by the brass which doubles each note of the opening motive of the hymn and diminishes the note values to sixteenths. This leads joyously to G-flat major. The volume dramatically decreases and steady sixteenths in the bells and vibraphone accompany the hymn tune played by solo flute with an obligato by solo oboe. The harmony of the hymn tune changes significantly in this presentation, creating a sort of heavenly atmosphere. The aggressive sixteenth notes of the previous transitional section return quite suddenly and grow into fanfare-like majesty and segue into a presentation of the hymn that is predominantly in C-major. The section grows to a pinnacle, modulates to F-minor, and returns to mysteriousness. Muted trumpets present the aggressive transition material in ethereal fashion along with the vibraphone while the low brass and woodwinds play the hymn tune in plaintive somberness. At the end of the tune, the remaining brass burst forth with the transition material and lead to one final statement of the penultimate phrase of the hymn in F-major. A coda follows with brass and woodwinds playing the first and second phrases of the hymn. The brass then begin a sort of benediction loosely based on the penultimate phrase of the hymn followed by euphonium solo on the final phrase, followed by muted trumpet on the second phrase and ending with alto saxophone on the first phrase--the reverse order signifying a return to the reverence of the beginning.

The work was originally to be in honor of the retirement of long time Theory Professor, Dr. Ted Johnson. Unfortunately, Dr. Johnson passed away on April 21, 2003, before any sketches of the new work had begun. I had spoke with Dr. Johnson some months before his death about the work that would be in his honor, asking him what kind of work he thought I should write. His response was basically to leave the creative endeavor in my hands as he knew and admired my music. He did add, however, that he was a bit old fashioned and had an affinity for the dramatic music of the Romantic period, especially the soaring horn parts written by Richard Strauss. As it turns out, I have featured the horn section in this work.Dr. Johnson touched a multitude of lives during his career. I was but one of hundreds of graduate students that was positively touched by his humanity and superb teaching skills. I will be eternally grateful, as will so many others. Richard Blatti, Associate Director of Bands at The Ohio State University sums up his feelings for Dr. Johnson as follows:"...it's more than theoretical concepts or analytical techniques that you taught me. You gave me such inspiration, a renewed love for learning, a fresh approach to problem-solving. . .and the greatest gift of all. . .you taught me how to teach."Dr. Johnson lived an extraordinary life and had such a major influence on so many other lives. His wonderful life and the gifts that he passed on were no accident. John Whitwell, Director of Bands at Michigan State University, has told me that such things happen because of "divine guidance" or "providence". This is the derivation for the title of the work.Ted Johnson authored two books, which were analyses of J. S. Bach's Two-Part and Three-Part Inventions. We all knew how much he revered the work of Bach. Three works by J. S. Bach were performed at his memorial service on April 24, 2003. One of these works, the aria Bist du bei mir ("Stay Thou Nearby"), is perhaps one of Bach's most beloved melodies. I chose this work to be the centerpiece for all the melodic material in Providence.The work begins in a sort of questioning fashion, as a man questions the meaning of his own life. The oboe sings the first four notes of the aria (Bist du bei mir) with an octave displacement of the fourth note. This motive is heard throughout the piece. The mystery and questioning grows and segues into a murmur by clarinets and marimba over which a can ensues on motives derived from the aria. At the conclusion of the canon, low brass state the beginning of the aria and a fugato on the first four notes of the aria follows. The fugato concludes with dissonant confusion but resolves into consonance and leads to a lovely statement by solo flute accompanied by harp. The melodic material for the flute solo is new and its lyrical and expressive quality alludes to spirituality and the meaning of life that we all seek. Turmoil follows as if to remind us of the ultimate reality of the tribulations of life. Counterpoint and dissonance abound in this section along with a pounding solo by timpani leading to a dark march on the first three notes of the aria. The march grows incessantly and finally leads to a joyous entrance of the aria theme by the horns and is now joined by the flute solo heard earlier, this time in the low brass. Woodwinds accompany on a sort of ostinato fashioned from aria motives. The section affirms that providence does, in fact, exist in our lives. A quiet benediction brings the work to closure.- DRG.

Suite in B-flat by Gordon Jacob (1895-1986). For Concert Band (Piccolo, Flute 1, Flute 2, Oboe 1, Oboe 2, Bassoon 1, Bassoon 2, Eb Clarinet, Bb Clarinet 1, Bb Clarinet 2, Bb Clarinet 3, Alto Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, Alto Saxophone 1, Alto Saxophone 2, Tenor Saxophone, Baritone Saxophone, Cornet 1, Cornet 2, Cornet 3,). Band Music. Grade 5. Score only. Duration 12:00. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.S11021). British composer Gordon Jacob ranks as one of the world's foremost contributors to the wind ensemble repertoire, with hundreds of works for military band as well as other types of musical groups. He earned his Doctor of Music degree and also taught counterpoint, orchestration and composition for 40 years at the Royal College of Music. He wrote band works along the lines of Gustav Holst and his good friend Vaughan Williams - not imitating their style but, as he said, "striving to come near to their spirit of adventure and independence of thought" in his own work.This suite was originally written for Brass Band in 1955 and was arranged for symphonic band in 1979. It has three movements, opening with a lighthearted March, followed by a subdued and tranquil movement entitled "Solemn Music." The suite closes with a symphonic march, which showcases the power of the wind ensemble.

Symphony AD 78 by Gordon Jacob (1895-1986). For Concert Band (Piccolo, 1st Flute, 2nd Flute, Oboe 1/2, Bassoon 1/2, Eb Clarinet, 1st Bb Clarinet, 2nd Bb Clarinet, 3rd Bb Clarinet, Eb Alto Clarinet, Bb Bass Clarinet, Eb Alto Saxophone 1/2, Bb Tenor Saxophone, Eb Baritone Saxophone, 1st Bb Cornet, 2nd/3rd Bb Cornet, 1). Band Music. Grade 5. Score only. Duration 15:30. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.S11158). With this Symphony, Gordon Jacob proclaims his absolute mastery of idiom and instrumentation with a triumphant rejoicing. Written in 1978 as a commission from Arthur Doyle (hence the "AD" in the title, a typical piece of Jacob wit), it lay virtually unplayed save for the efforts of his Estate, Troy Peterson and Geoffrey Brand and CBDNA (College Band Directors Association, USA), who between them ensured that it was professionally recorded in 1994 and published in 1995.There is little point in indulging in semantics as to whether the piece is a Symphony. It is Jacob's approach to his tuneful, folk-based material which is symphonic: weighty in exposition and development, sonorous and expressive in the slow movement, with a scherzo-like last movement and a giocoso coda.After a brilliant opening fanfare, the quick triple-meter first theme (Allegro Risoluto) is introduced on clarinets, punctuated with brass. It is soon followed by a contrasting melody for saxophone. In all this material the interval of a 4th is prominent, and throughout the work the 4th and 7th are important. Perhaps it is the frequent use of the 7th which gives a feeling of restlessness without resolution which pervades this movement as the themes are dissected and developed.The second movement follows directly after a horn bridge. Still the melody outlines the 7th and the ear is not satisfied until the full band (with organ), comes to rest in Bb major. This point of repose and the magic pianissimo which follows shortly after when the slow theme is re-stated, are the apex of the Symphony's construction.Soon, however, we are transported, via a fanfare, into a helter-skelter 9/8 romp: rustic, English, and almost vulgar, this theme is thrown around the group before exploding into a boisterous 2/4 coda.

Band Music. Maestro Band Series. Grade 3. Score only. Duration 6:15. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.S11162). This work is based on an event in the life of Bonnie Prince Charlie. He had returned to Scotland and was gathering about him an army heading south towards England, which had sent Sir John Cope to fight with him. The traditional folk-song "Johnnie Cope" is the basis of all the themes in the work.Charlie attacked the English at Prestonpans outside Edinburgh - this is represented by "Battle" - where the theme appears as fanfares and battle shrieks. There followed a period of mourning as the English had been massacred - "Lament" - in which the theme is fragmented into long sustained phrases. The Scots rejoiced and celebrated in Edinburgh - "Dancing" - where the theme is the original used as a reel.The Tambours referred to in the Woodwind parts can be a diverse collection of drums, even home-made. A simple yet effective drum can be made from a plastic tub or bucket with polythene stretched over the open end and held in place with elastic bands to create the tension. Otherwise, any sort of tom-tom, bongo, or unsnared drum is suitable.

Band Music. Grade 4. Score only. Duration 9:30. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.10441). "Interpretations" was conceived as a collaborative arts project by composer Roger Cichy for the Mount St. Charles Academy in Woonsocket, Rhode Island. This commission was designed to encompass several of the arts by drawing on the fine arts, music, and dance within the academy. Mr. Cichy's composition, therefore, is a musical 'interpretation' based on four selected student art pieces, hence the title. Following the completion of the musical 'interpretations,' the academy's dance department choreographed dances based on the newly composed music. "Interpretations" was premiered by projecting the original student artwork on a large screen as the wind ensemble and dance ensembles performed the work live.The opening movement, 'Mask,' based on a three-dimensional black and white mask, reflects the bipolar elements incorporated in its design. Here Cichy uses the brass and percussion in angular melodies, dramatic rhythms, and vertical harmonies to illustrate one aspect of the mask. A lyrical and subdued texture is created by the woodwind section along with subtle percussion to act as the opposing pole.The indicated style for 'Shrouded Figure,' "Sinister yet mysterious," easily describes the character of this movement. Cichy draws on several compositional techniques to enhance the mystery of the unidentified figure in the art piece.The movement titled 'Popped Corn' depicts a single kernel of popcorn as it lies with its energy spent on the burst, now in a motionless state. The music for this movement incorporates a lazy blues style to imitate the lifeless dimensions of the still-life art piece.'Self Portrait' (of the artist, not the composer) contains an array of colors and geometric patterns culminating in an image of a face. In this movement, Cichy's use of irregular meters and quick tempos transposes the energy and impulse created by the artwork.The artwork upon which this composition is based was created by the following student artists:David Corner, MaskElizabeth Zeibig, Shrouded FigureGreer Monaghan, Popped CornMarassa Streniste, Self Portrait.

No Shadow of Turning by David Gillingham.

Band Music. Grade 4. Score only. Duration 9:40. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.10991). No Shadow of Turning was commissioned by a consortium of organizations at The Ohio State University in memory of Lois Brock, beloved secretary of The Ohio State University Bands. The work is based on the hymn tune Great is Thy Faithfulness, by Thomas O. Chisholm (words) and William M. Runyan (music).Great is thy faithfulness, O God my Father;There is no Shadow of turning with thee;Thou changest not, thy compassions, they fail not;As thou hast been, thou forever wilt be.Refrain:Great is thy faithfulness! Great is thy faithfulness!Morning by morning new mercies I see;All I have needed thy hand hath provided;Great is thy faithfulness, Lord, unto thee.Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,Sun, moon, and stars in their courses aboveJoin with all nature in manifold witnessTo thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.Refrain.Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide;Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!Refrain.The title of the work is taken from the second line of the first verse which perhaps sums up the meaning of the hymn and the faith held by Lois Brock. The work also features optional hand bells, as Lois Brock was an avid hand bell player in her local church.The work begins quietly and somewhat mysteriously on a motive using the interval of the falling fourth of the refrain of the hymn. This material grows and gathers texture and then concludes softly on a rolled G major chord in the marimba. A chorale follows, played by the vibraphone and bells and/or the hand bells. I call this chorale the "Lois Brock Chorale" as it exhibits the warmness of her ever-loving spirit. An interlude follows utilizing motives from the hymn and leads to the flute playing the verse of the hymn. Pursuant to this quiet rendition is a rather aggressive section featuring the timpani and percussion that play with the opening motive of the refrain. This leads to a fugue on the same motivic material that grows in intensity and segues with the trombones playing the hymn tune in march-like style against fanfare-like motives in the trumpets. All this subsides and the hymn is now played by the trumpets against the horns playing the Lois Brock Chorale. The full band joins in on the refrain that rises to a glorious pinnacle and then concludes softly by the euphonium. The material from the introduction is then restated and leads to a final statement of the refrain followed by a peaceful and heavenly benediction.

The Michigan State University Orchestra Program celebrated its 75th anniversary in the academic year 2001-2002. I, among others, was invited to compose a fanfare for brass and percussion to open one of the season's concerts. My offering was titled Spartan Spirit, and it bears the seed of A Spartan's Dream. I liked what I had done in the fanfare, but I felt the need for a larger and more flexible ensemble. The second 'Spartan' creation shares material with the original, but it is expanded to twice the length of the earlier piece. It is now less a fanfare and more a tone poem. The performing forces may vary from the smallest wind ensemble to the largest symphonic band.--Jere Hutcheson.

"Northern Light" was commissioned by the Walled Lake Northern High School Bands on the occasion of the first graduating class in June of 2005. The work incorporates the school's "Alma Mater" for which I was commissioned to write the music for several years ago.The work uses a sonata-like design. It begins with a slow introduction beginning in Ab major using material from the Alma Mater and modulates to Bb major. An allegro exposition follows with a fanfare-like first theme (trumpets) that is celebratory in nature. A short transition leads to the second theme (Alma Mater) in Gb Major presented in a slower and more stately tempo. A development section follows which using fugal counterpoint as its centerpiece with the subject based on the first theme. Alternating episodes develop both themes and a retransition leads the work to the recapitulation of the first theme, this time in Ab Major. A transition dramatically leads to the final presentation of theme 2 (Alma Mater) in C Major with its rhythm augmented. A coda appropriately brings the work to a rousing conclusion.--DRG.

Band Music. Grade 3. Score only. Duration 4:30. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.S11272). I have a long connection with the town of Bannockburn, as my wife was born and brought up there. It has therefore been a long ambition to write a work based on the history of the town and its most important tale.In 1314, the forces of Edward II and Robert I met on the flat land south of Stirling. Edward had accepted a challenge to relieve Stirling Castel - one of the few Scottish castles still under English control - by midsummer's day. The Scottish forces, although smaller, were better led and better positioned. They won a heroic victory and Edward fled the field and Scotland (narrowly escaping capture). Although it was not until 1328 that the English monarchy (under Edward III) accepted Scotland's right to full independent status, the Battle of Bannockburn marked the end of any English pretensions to control the northern British kingdom.Musically, the opening represents the advance of the English army. The Scots had prepared extra long spears to defend against the expected cavalry onslaught. The tension builds and the tempo increases as the English charge, only to find that the spears are extremely effective. The Scots manage to force the English into retreat and are victorious. I have used tiny fragments of two melodies to build up my own set of working notes - Flower of Scotland, a song which immortalizes the victory, and a song called the Fields of Bannockburn.Hopefully, the music demonstrates the thrill of battle and victory and will also thrill players and audience.

Band Music. Grade 3. Score only. Duration 7:35. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.11491). Light of My Soul was commissioned by The Gustavus Adolphus College Wind Orchestra, Douglas, Nimmo, conductor, for the occasion of their 2006 European Tour.The work is a fantasia on the hymn Beautiful Savior. It begins slowly in Eb Major with quiet murmurs in the flutes and 1st clarinets underlaying brass playing with motivic material taken from the first two bars of the hymn. This leads to a statement divided between the flutes and the clarinets of the 5th and 6th bars of the hymn serving as a bridge to Bb Major where the horns sing a new and expressive melody. This melody is a harmonic "partner" to Beautiful Savior, and will eventually combine with the hymn. Trumpets are added for the final phrases of the new melody followed by a full band transition, based on the opening motive of Beautiful Savior, accelerating to a new section in D Major. The new section is characterized by a sense of urgency and features fugal counterpoint on a subject derived from the first phrases of the hymn tune. Ensuing is a section featuring timpani, crotales, temple blocks and tom-toms under motives from the first phrase of the hymn heard in various harmonic guises. The intensity grows, accelerates and modulates to E Major where the piccolo and piano play a spirited counterline accompanying Beautiful Savior played by saxophone quartet. A full band transition slows down the motion, diminishes in volume and modulates to Db Major where both the Beautiful Savior tune and the new melody are harmoniously combined, with oboe singing the new melody and the horns on the hymn tune. The new melody and the hymn tune progress to a joyous and dramatic conclusion on the last phrase and then fade into a benediction begun by the flutes playing motives from the 5th bar of the hymn tune. The work ends peacefully in Db Major with bells and vibraphone echoing the earlier flute motives.--DRG.

Band Music. Grade 4. Score only. Duration 7:05. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.11571). "The Led Page" is a symphonic band adaptation of my orchestral work, "Turn the Page." The writing of "Turn the Page" was the result of my association with conductor and good friend Jung Ho Pak (New Haven Symphony and World Youth Symphony Orchestras). Maestro Pak and I met at The Interlochen Arts Camp where we are both faculty and we collaborate on the orchestra reading project with the student composers.Our conversations over the years have included the future of the orchestra and new orchestral music in our society. Audiences have lost a great deal of context with new music over the past 90 years, in my opinion, and new music has remained an anomaly for many listeners.So when I decided to write Jung Ho an orchestra piece, I knew it had to be music that meant something to listeners--something that would have cultural context to an audience and yet be challenging and interesting to play. And a piece that would be played more than just once.I seek a certain drama and excitement in my music. Perhaps that is why I am so attracted to composers like Mahler, Stravinky, and Daugherty. But I also have a diverse listening palate having played big band jazz as a lead trumpet player and funk as a synthesizer player.Often when I travel, especially on long driving trips, I will listen to old "art-rock" of bands such as Yes, Genesis, and Led Zeppelin. One of my favorite tunes is "Heartbreaker" from the album "Led Zeppelin II." It has a very unusual guitar solo in the middle of the song-- Unusual, because the band stops playing and Jimmy Page takes a motivically oriented solo, much like a cadenza in a concerto. It was the first time anything like that was ever done in that genre and was really the beginning of guitarists becoming virtuosos on their instruments. Actually, that solo had all the fire of a Tchaikovsky or Mendelssohn concerto cadenza.Hence, the idea came to be to combine the suggestion of this solo with orchestra and, later, to use an electric guitar or CD recording of the actual solo with the orchestra. It seemed to me that all the power of Led Zeppelin was certainly in good company with a full-sized symphony orchestra--witness Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring." Could any rock band create that much excitement?

The piece received its premiere performance at the North Carolina Music Educators Association In-Service Conference in Winston-Salem, NC in November 2004. Dance Diabolique is composed in two sections. The piece begins with a distant call in the solo horn part, which beckons the listener into a turbulent musical landscape. The call is restated as layers of sound build to a fortissimo climax with the full ensemble. The slow introduction fades into the distance, with the percussion section heralding the arrival of the fast section. The melody is initially stated by a solo clarinet, which is then joined by a solo flute. The band progresses through numerous episodes, both violent and lyrical in nature. The piece is full of driving rhythmic passages and soaring melodies, with the percussion section featured predominantly throughout the work.- Gary Ziek.

Prelude from 'Tristan and Isolde' by Geoffrey Brand. Arranged by Geoffrey Brand. For Concert Band (1st Flute, 2nd Flute, 1st/2nd Oboe, English Horn, 1st Bb Clarinet, 2nd Bb Clarinet, 3rd Bb Clarinet, Eb Alto Clarinet, Bb Bass Clarinet, 1st/2nd Bassoon, 1st/2nd Eb Alto Saxophone, Bb Tenor Saxophone, Eb Baritone Saxophone, 1st Bb Cornet, 2nd/3rd Bb Corne). Band Music. Grade 5. Score only. Duration 9:25. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.S11276). Wagner finished the first act of Tristan and Isolde on the last day of 1857 and two years later he finished the entire opera. Yet it was not until 1865, after various disasters had prevented the piece being performed, that it was heard in public and the sensational opening of the Prelude at a stroke created a different harmonic framework for late 19th century music and beyond.Now, thanks to Geoffrey Brand's masterly arrangement, concert bands can experience Wagner's remarkable conception. Purists may argue that bands should prefer original works for the medium. But our musical understanding is not complete without reference points and who is to say that if we happen to play in a band not an orchestra we should not have the first-hand opportunity to experience these master works?
