Wind in the Aspens
for Concert Band
(see perusal score below for full instrumentation)
Wind in the Aspens is an exciting, rhythmically vibrant work for concert band. The music is reminiscent of the ever-changing gusts of wind that send the aspens and their unique leaves dancing, fluttering, and swaying. The piece maintains a consistent pulse throughout, with surprising and unexpected moments. A great opener or "palette cleanser" for any concert.
This piece was commissioned and premiered by Mr. Aaron Herman and the Fossil Ridge High School Wind Ensemble in Fort Collins, CO.
