Product Description

Tides Composed by Bill Calhoun. For Concert Band. Published by Carl Fischer, Llc. (Catalog # FPS130, UPC: 680160900640)

** Stanton’s Staff Selection – 2016 **
Our emotions ebb and flow much like ocean tides, and Bill Calhoun’s lyrical work in 3/4 brings this concept to life.  Moving, slurred 8th note lines, dynamic swells, and a number of harmonic suspensions bring to mind rolling tides and crashing waves alternating with brief moments of calm.  The harmonized melody is hauntingly beautiful and poignant, and the tempo changes and key change provide moments of musical growth for the developing ensemble.  Of course all the elements of lyrical musicianship apply as well – blend, balance, dynamics, and phrasing.  (2:58)
