Noten für BlasorchesterErich! 3 movements
Straussian, Korngoldian orchestration,.. constantly changing colours and rhythmic drive take us through this swashbuckling tribute to composer, ERICH WOLFGANG KORNGOLD! The highly energized music is simply derived from the first 5 notes of the major scale. The piece, in addition to its programmatic power is a wonderful teaching tool. The 2nd Movement, THE GIFT OF LOVE, is a romantic ballad, warm and giving. There is also a Brass Quartet Version, and a Low Brass Choir Version. Erich Wolfgang Korngold, born in Br?nn, Austria (now Brno, Czechoslovakia), on May 29, 1897, has been called the last of the great Romantic composers. The son of eminent Austrian music critic Julius Korngold, he was a child prodigy who stunned the Viennese music world with his precocity as a composer.
