PRELUDE TO A FESTIVAL - SCORE
Description

Details

The percussion section enters the picture at measure 22, changing the feeling of the piece to one of energy and exuberance.  Propelled by insistently rhythmic figures in the low winds and brasses, the band builds several layers on musical texture upon one another, exploring and developing several new themes.  Always increasing the momentum, the band reaches the climax of the piece at measure 83 with full force.  Here, the major melodic and rhythmic elements converge, leading up to the bombastic compound-meter conclusion.
