The German composer Woldemar Bargiel was the half-brother of Clara Schumann and composed a significant amount of chamber music. He was supported by fellow composers Robert Schumann and Johannes Brahms. His Adagio, opus 38 for cello and orchestra is an eloquently beautiful solo work and makes a very attractive solo feature for euphonium with wind accompaniment. This setting was premiered with euphonium soloist Misa Meade accompanied by the Loyola University Concert Band (New Orleans).

This esteemed Russian composer is universally recognized as both a master orchestrator and a master of ballet music. His music remains popular not only in the ballets themselves but also in the many dances and suites drawn from the scores. Tchaikovsky's signature on the march form is found in many march settings, including this from "The Sleeping Beauty."  As it opens the ballet, this resplendent march provides grand entrance music into the regal court of King Florestan.

Charles Gounod's opera "Faust," loosely based on the Faustian legend and the play by Goethe, was premiered in August of 1859 and remains one of the most frequently performed grand operas in the repertory. One of the more memorable melodies in Gounod's score occurs in Act IV when an on-stage band marches in as Valentin and the soldiers returning from war sing the rousing Soldiers' Chorus. This march, along with the marches from Wagner's "Tannhauser" and Verdi's "Aida," are among the most beloved of operatic marches.

This spectacular tour de force was composed for the Wind Symphony of Clovis (California) for their performance at The Midwest Clinic in 2018. The work was written in memory of the composer's mother and was inspired by one of her many charitable deeds: this one taking place on Christmas Eve. The resplendent writing includes unpredictable changes of style that range from solemn hymn statements to careening passages of wild abandon, humor, and coupled with stylistic references to the polka music the composer heard as a child. All of this is topped by virtuosic solo and section writing that challenges every performer. A remarkable work for upper-level bands.

These mighty beasts of legend and lore were believed to wield almost limitless might and power.

This programmatic composition depicts a dark and intense journey to conquer an enemy force. The mysterious introduction exudes an ominous tone as the dampened pulse of the bass drum creates the timbre of a resolute heartbeat as opposing forces gather, then collide. Intense brass statements, brisk woodwind ostinatos, and running lines combine with unrelenting percussive parts to depict a fierce battle scene. The action then subsides into a triumphant flourish that ends the piece with the assertive and uncompromising sounds of victory.

The West Coast has a reputation for being at the forefront of technology and innovation; it is also an area of great natural beauty. This duality of technology and nature provides the inspiration for this work. Staccato musical elements create a decidedly digital effect, contrasting stylistically with more lyrical melodies that represent the vistas of breathtaking landscapes . A wonderfully colorful musical mosaic of this vibrant part of our country.

This piece is based on a Scottish folk song thought to have originated in the Hebrides. Common people in Scotland and Ireland would burn dried peat from the bogs for their hearth fires and gather around to tell tales and dance. The music tells of a journey, beginning with a somber and somewhat melancholy melody. It soon takes on a more upbeat feel as the tempo picks up and the mood becomes more uplifting and lively.  It presses on to a spirited and bright ending.

The energy returns with angular and strident brass and percussion statements over woodwind ostinatos. A soaring climax ensues as the opening fanfare returns for a spectacular finish.

Travel back to the time of the oldest human civilizations, whose very existence seem to us today as ghosts of a long-dead past. A solo flute and solo trumpet provide musical invitations for listeners to transport themselves to these ancient times while the band answers with antiphonal response. This work continues to gain momentum as ghostly apparitions from ancient times swirl in and out of sight like spinning wisps of mist.  The specters - and the music - gain strength and substance as they approach the unyielding vortex of an exciting conclusion.

In 1884, a locomotive tossed a spark that started a fire that reduced the town of Milton, Pennsylvania to ashes. A majestic fanfare depicts the vibrant town with train whistles in the flutes, train bells in the chimes, whirling engines in the brass, and telegraphs in woodwinds and mallets. Growing dissonances depict the fierce firestorm that abruptly dissolves into a solemn oboe solo of the town's sadness, while paper bags and plastic water bottles represent the smoldering fire. The music then turns from sorrow to hope as small sections of the school's alma mater embed the message of hope and optimism before the rousing and triumphant coda.
