G. Schirmer

Description

Originally commissioned by the New York Philharmonic and written as a love letter in music to all of New York City's wonderful and terrible things, Danielpour and Martin's collaboration brings Toward the Splendid City - an 8-minute wild ride of musical imagery of NYC's skyline, bridges and tunnels, bawdy and brash nightlife and more - to the wind band medium. Brassy bursts of color and surges of notes are abundant in a musical tribute to the vitality of this dynamic city. Dur: 8:00 (Recorded by the West Chester University Wind Ensemble, Dr. Andrew Yozviak, conductor)
