Product Description

Free Running Composed by Robert Buckley. For Concert Band. Published by Hal Leonard Publishing Corp. (Catalog # 04003159, UPC: 884088651350)

Free Running is an exciting, high velocity tour-de-force that will keep both musicians and the audience on the edge of their seats. Inspiration for the work came from the pointillistic paintings of Seurat (who created images by using tiny spots of primary colors on his canvas) and from Parkour, a form of urban acrobatics in which participants, known as free runners, use the structures of the rural landscape to perform catlike leaps and sprints. The resulting creation is a non-stop piece of music made up of only staccato notes in a constant rhythm moving through different sections of the ensemble. Free Running was commissioned by the Troy University Symphony Band for the 2011 Alabama Music Educators Association Convention.Ideal for concert or festival use, it is guaranteed to leave the audience breathless! Dur: 5:10 Recorded by the Troy University Symphony Band - Ralph Ford, conductor
