Description: Alan Parshley, Director
The Vermont Wind Ensemble presents an exciting program of contrasts: light and darkness, celebration and introspection. Frank Ticheli’s spectacular composition “Angels in the Architecture” is a musical essay on the struggle between light and what lurks in the darkness. Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s “Russian Easter Overture” was written in memory of fellow Russian composers Mussorgsky and Borodine. This stirring and magical piece ranks among the finest compositions that Rimsky-Korsakov wrote, and has been masterfully transcribed for concert band by William V. Johnson. Traditional Japanese folk songs and native Japanese percussion instruments inspired Yasuhide Ito to write his exciting “Festal Scenes”. Also included on the program: Steven Bryant’s peaceful and contemplative “Dusk”, Howard Hanson’s “Choral and Alleluia”, and a march by Henry Fillmore, “The Klaxon”.
