Product Description

Synthesis Composed by Brian Balmages. For Concert Band. Published by Fjh Music Company, Inc.. (Catalog # B1674, UPC: 241444370582)

** Stanton’s Staff Selection – 2016 **
With a percussion punctuated opening reminiscent of Fanfare for the Common Man, Synthesis soon adds layers of contemporary harmony and stately rhythm.  A brief chorale-type interlude provides contrast leading to a full frontal assault of ensemble bombast.  The celebration begins with an up-tempo, dance-like melody that passes through the ensemble set against syncopated accompaniment.  Call & response figures pass between instrumental choirs building to a layered overlapping of the two ideas for a resounding statement of jubilant celebration.   Powerful!
