Echoes of Memories

Echoes of Memories


Beautiful long flowing phrases, excellent variations with relatively simple rhythms. Great for teaching phrasing, dynamic variation and especially staggered breathing on long phrases. Each section of the band has demands musically. Key centers are a challenge for younger players, which make this a great teaching piece for listening for balance, blend and intonation. (Begins in D minor, Ends in C Major). 1st trumpet range up to A, with exposed but achievable percussion writing.

I use this piece every couple of years to teach musical concepts as well as let younger players hear a more modern "cinematic" approach to band writing.
