Fiery and intense, this offering from Robert W. Smith builds from beginning to end. Starting with a basic rhythmic underpinning and simple melody based on the Eb scale, layers are gradually added until the rhythmic interplay in the final section makes the piece sound more complex than it is. Dynamic shading and lots of powerful percussion make this work very effective. Ultimatum is sure to be a favorite with your students.
