Bruce Pearson is best known as the author of the Standard of Excellence Comprehensive Band Method. But quietly and consistently he has become one of the foremost composers of quality and challenging music for young bands. Now Tableau joins such grade two titles as Tapestry, Renaissance Triptych, Proclamation, and Canticle as outstanding compositions for both contest/festival and concert programming. A tableau is a graphic description or representation of ancient days and Tableau, the composition, is its musical counterpart, written in the ancient F Aeolian mode. Sparked by a tranquil Andante trumpet solo, and followed shortly by an exciting Allegro flute solo, the selection ends with dramatic ascending scale passages for all instruments in the band. A performance must!

Brilliant, clever and brimming with excitement, another ingenious Himes masterpiece! The objective of Thingamajig is to create a whimsical contraption of sound in the same spirit as the late Rube Goldberg, which appeared as cartoons in the New York Evening Mail.

The enthused percussion section will use instruments such as a metal pipe, kitchen pans and a bicycle horn.

A delicate and delightful feature for three solo flutes or the entire flute section! Barcarole for Flutes is a flute feature for three solo flutes. (If desired, the solo can be played by six flutes.) Both the first and the last section are in unison for the solo flutes while the middle section is divisi. The piece should be performed with the band accompaniment clearly in the background. If needed, the conductor should reduce the number of players to achieve proper balance. The piece begins with a smoothly flowing melody in the oboe and fist clarinet, accompanied by a countermelody in the alto saxophones, then flows into a lyrical melody for the solo flutes. The low woodwinds and low brass punctuate the sensitive and delicate melody with a rhythmical accompaniment. The ensemble builds in a sweeping sound toward the end of the first section. The middle section contains rhythmical variety within the flute solo as well as in an agitated accompaniment before returning to the original melody. After the return of the original melody, the brass and low woodwind accompaniment builds to a point before falling back to finish with the gentle hush of the flute solo. .
Instruments: Flute, Clarinet, Oboe, Brass, Woodwinds

The work concludes with a restatement of the lively and spirited opening material.
