Lament and Tribal Dances
Commissioned by the Iowa Bandmasters Association, this dynamic new work from Michael Sweeney is written in three contrasting sections. The opening “Lament” features a plaintive F Horn melody and expansiveharmonies. The mood then shifts to an intensely rhythmic dance using an unusual modal scale. In the final section, the flutes switch to recorde rs and a driving percussion ostinato figure helps propel this magnificent piece to a dramatic ending. A rewarding and satisfying work from one of today's best composers for young bands.
