Noten für BlasorchesterOde and Jubilation
As the title implies, there is a dichotomy of spirit within the contrasting sections. But, there is also a mutual thematic development which forms a relation. After beginning with a lyrical introduction the trumpet invokes an expressive solo passage, the work then progresses to an energetic rhythmic pattern which offers and leads to a joyful spirit of celebration. A recapitulation of the original theme is reintroduced to form a variation to the end. This distinctive composition was selected by the Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation to receive the NJSCA Fellowship award. Very, Very Nice!
