An American Tapestry
is a continuous medley of three American folk songs:��the happy-go-lucky��The Girl I Left Behind Me
, the somberand reflective��He's Gone Away
, and the foot-stompin' hoedown�� Ol' Dan Tucker
. The setting was originally composed for chamber winds (11 players) and has been completely rescored by the composer in this new edition for full wind ensemble. The contrasting tempi and sentimentsof the tunes, enlivened with unique and colorful harmonies and instrume ntation, contribute to make this appealing for wind players from high school to professional. Dur: 7:15 (Boosey & Hawkes Windependence - Artist Level)Recorded by the University of Wisconsin - River Falls Symphonic Band – Kris Tjornehoj, conductor NOTE: An online perusal scoreis not yet posted for this title.
