"Wind" - a soft, gentle breeze; slight gusts; a furious, blowing storm; the still calm after a storm. Each of these facets of one of nature's strongest forces is portrayed in this fantastic work for young band. The slower tempo will allow for plenty of work on the various rhythmic patterns and layered rhythmic movements. Dynamics and phrasing are a must to give this unique work its full character. Fantastic, original writing!
