In Stock. This clever fantasia builds on a Burgundian carol, dating back to 1842, that is a melody familiar to holiday concert audiences everywhere. Mr. Del Borgo quietly introduces the theme and then takes it on a roller coaster ride full of twists and turns, with strong percussion support throughout. Compositional devices add continuing interest throughout as the work builds to a dramatic conclusion. It's a perfect holiday concert closer! (2:26)
The history of our great nation was written by the pioneers who braved all the elements and hardships they faced on a daily basis. In a salute to those men and women who began their trek near Independence, Missouri, and ended it at the Columbia River region of Oregon, Michael Story brings us a sound portrait of this very important pathway. With bold sonic strokes from the winds and percussion, the work moves with energy and drive. This is an important contribution to the concert and contest literature for the young concert band.
