Description

Comprised of two main themes, Liberty strives to capture the essence of Americana. The first of the two themes is stated by a trumpet duet, then later the full ensemble. The second theme is robust and emotionally dynamic and accompanied by a driving, rhythmic pulse. The arc of the piece returns to the first theme, this time more transparent, and ending on a gentle, quiet note. A rewarding work for winds with plenty of variety and depth. Dur: 5:15 (Recorded by the West Genesee (NY) High School Wind Ensemble, Andrew Perry, conductor) (G. Schirmer, Inc.)
