UMD WIND ENSEMBLE: Cornerstones

Description:
Composer Vincent Persichetti wrote that, outside the pop field, Band music is virtually the only kind of music in America today... which can be introduced, accepted, put to immediate and wide use, and become a staple of the literature in a short time. In this concert, the UMD Wind performs these repertoire essentials. The lively themes of Kabalevskys Colas Breugnon overture tell the story of a woodcarver who stands against an oppressive duke. Holsts First Suite in E-flat showcases the composers mastery in composing for woodwinds. Persichettis Symphony No. 6 is his most significant work for wind band. {Will appear in FYI on Oct 24, 2012
