    New World Sketches - Dan Price

    New World Sketches is a descriptive journey through the landscapes and images of America in the early part of the 20th century. The images and caricatures chosen epitomize all that is the ‘New World', and the musical language draws upon influences of sound and technique that American composers have introduced into the musical vocabulary.SidewalkThe work opens with a busy street scene of 1930's New York, and the hustle and bustle of the city can be heard through percussive scoring of car hooters, trams and pedestrians going about their business, featuring elements of George Gershwin's American In Paris and Rhapsody in Blue. There is the sound of a Broadway show, a glimpse of a ‘Tom and Jerry' cartoon and the smokey sounds of Harlem.The Deep SouthAs the subtitle suggests, the second movement of New World Sketches evokes images of the 1890's Deep South beginning with a simple spiritual. Played first on unaccompanied solo euphonium the melody is then joined by bass trombone, depicting a slave "work song". An increase in tempo and a resounding tubular bell announces the arrival of a steam locomotive complete with "Love Chime" whistle.RodeoThe final movement steers away from the jazz influences synonymous in America's musical history and turns towards the music of Aaron Copland for inspiration. The opening unison tune, played on piccolo, flutes, oboe, bassoon, tenor sax, trumpet and trombone accompanied by extensive poly-chords, creates a big-country sound while the fast pseudo-Irish Jig provides the energy and flair of a rodeo.New World Sketches is conceived as a single work however each movement works independently if so desired.

    Two Colonial Sketches - Arr. John O'Reilly

    A majestic fanfare ushers in the classic early-American tune "Chester," treated in a rich chorale style. The second movement features the percussion section in an upbeat arrangement of "Yankee Doodle." Snare drums play paradiddles, flams and rolls in a traditional rudimental style. This special arrangement is correlated with Accent on Achievement, Book 1, page 33. A great way to introduce your band to the American classics!

    To a Wild Rose - Edward MacDowell - Philip Sparke

    Edward MacDowell can be regarded as the first great American composer, although he disliked the idea of being classified as any sort of musical nationalist. He composed a large number of orchestral works but it is the charming and unpretentious suite of musical miniatures, Woodland Sketches, that has survived as his best-known work, with To a Wild Rose being the most popular. Philip Sparke has expertly arranged this simple work for concert band.
