    Summer dances - Adam Gorb

    'Summer Dances' is a joyful work in three short movements celebrating my favourite season where people are happiest outdoors. Each movement is a celebration - the first movement 'Summer Day' celebrates the open air, with a bold and arrogant melody in 10/8 time, whose rhythm dominates the movement. The next movement 'Summer Night' could be described as a 'Beach Habanera' led by a sensuous trumpet melody. The movement ends with an ambiguous harmonic build-up, which is resolved at the start of the finale 'Summer Party' with a folk like theme that is passed round the ensemble, building up, (with suggestions of the first movement theme) to a riotous and festive ending. Summer Dances was commissioned by HAFABRA Music, Louis Martinus in collaboration with Biblioservice Gelderland/Music department MUI, Arhnhem, the Netherlands. Regarding interpretation suggestions: Movement 1) Lively but not too fast - very much a piece for the full ensemble, up until the final six bars when things become more subtle and intimate - maybe sunset.... Movement 2) Very laid back and sexy. The movement should be thought of as a wonderfully promising 'first date' or 'wedding night', with great possibilities with the unresolved chord at the end of the movement.... Movement 3) As fast as is comfortably possible. The start should be delicate and chamber music like, but increase in general excitement, particularly from figure 31. Something should be saved up for a true fortissimo at 34.

    Norwegian Dance No. 2 - Edvard Grieg - Morten Wensberg

    Edvard Grieg composed his "Four Norwegian Dances, op. 35" during the summer of 1881. The second of these four dances is by far the most popular and recognizable. This short piece in ABA form has become a staple of Norwegian music and practically all Norwegians will immediately recognize this tune.

    Chiaroscuro - Robert Sheldon

    Chiaroscuro: Symphonic Dances in Shades of Darkness and Light was written in the summer of 2001 for the Tara Winds of Atlanta, Georgia, and their conductor, Dr. David Gregory. The first performance took place at the Midwest International Band and Orchestra Clinic in Chicago, Illinois, with the composer conducting. Chiaroscuro is comprised of four interconnected dance-like movements that portray various dance gestures. The first movement is dark and menacing; the second depicts a dreamy forest scene; the third movement has a jazz and Latin influence; the final movement is comprised of a joyous tarantella that increases in tempo until its tumultuous ending.
