Product Description

Krakatoa (Mountain of Fire) Composed by William Owens. For Concert Band. Published by Fjh Music Company, Inc.. (Catalog # B1385, UPC: 674398224173)

** Stanton's Staff Selection - 2008 **
Key: Bb - Meters: 4/4, 3/4
Rhythms: basic 8th & 16th note patterns, 2 beat quarter note triplet, dotted quarter/8th pattern
Teaching Concepts: accents, accidentals, tempo changes, articulation, dissonance, aleatoricism

Students love these big, programmatic works and Krakatoa is no exception. Accidentals and dissonances must be played strongly to convey the full effect of the piece and your students will have fun with the avant-garde/aleatoric section using foot rumbles and notes played out of time to create chaos. Percussive eruptions, driving eighth note rhythms, and intervals reminiscent of Gustav Holst's Mars give this work excitement and life.
