Modern harmonies and layered writing add to the rhythmic fire of the percussion section in this bold program piece by Robert Sheldon. Staccato syncopated rhythms contrast with legato, slurred lines in the winds. Percussion breaks punctuate this piece and provide drive from beginning to end. Use this work to feature your percussion section, and challenge your students to balance each other on the hamonic clusters. First rate!
