MYSTERIES OF THE
by Dennis Eveland
Key - Eb/F
Tempo - Adagio/Allegro Vivo
Quite a few A naturals mixed in throughout the band. Tempo change to Allegro Vivo following a fermata. Key also changes to F there. Repetitive 8th quarter 8th in saxes, trombones and euphonium. Quite a few accidentals mixed in throughout the group.
More information: Adagio beginning, starts with exposed bass voice sustain. Intro section many exposed long tones. Allegro Vivo sounds like a Marvel movie score. WW 16th runs move from beat 2 to beat 1 after page turn in the score. Dotted 8th/16th rhythms into syncopated 8ths in high voices. Subito piano with crescendo at the very end hides the suspension resolution that is thinly scored. Many accidentals throughout. This piece is a huge jump in difficulty from the level 4 we had to read last year. Actually a fun piece in many ways.
Percussion: Timpani, Bells, Snare Drum, Bass Drum, Crash Cymbals, Triangle,
