A sirocco is a Mediterranean wind that originates in the Sahara Desert, capable of reaching hurricane velocities. This piece reflects the changing nature of this dry wind; it starts with a brief and violent flurry, then settles down, depicting the still, hot desert morning. As the desert comes to life, the music evolves into a 6/8 world-music groove, enhanced by colorful percussion effects. Building and growing in intensity, the raging sandstorm powers over the landscape to a climactic close.

Commissioned by and dedicated to the Folly Quarter Middle School Band in Ellicott City, Maryland, Andrew Sprang, conductor. This highly programmatic piece gives you a front-row seat in the viewing stands as it depicts a high-speed car race. The opening section starts the engines, sets the pole position, and then the race is on. The action slows briefly for a caution flag, and then it's full throttle as the race resumes with a wild dash to the finish line, closing with a triumphant victory lap.

Starburst is dedicated to the Johnston County Eighth Grade All-County Middle School Band in Benson, North Carolina. It's a sparkling work that was specifically written to feature all sections of the band. Attention is immediately focused on the hard-driving full-ensemble introduction that moves into a feature for the woodwinds and horns. The trumpets then get the spotlight, followed by a brief woodwind interlude that transitions to the final recap to close with a resounding flourish.

Commissioned by the 2004 Harford All-County Middle School Band, Maryland. A strong sense of suspense is established at the very outset, permeating the musical fabric throughout the entire piece to create a very effective, attention-grabbing concert opener. An unsettled and relentless rhythmic pulse drives the work forward, provided at various times by woodwinds, brass, and percussion, keeping the listener on edge until they all come together for the intense and emphatic finish.

Commissioned by the Maynard Music Association for the Fowler School Band (Massachusetts), Kevin Zozik, conductor. Tigers are among the most majestic and fearsome creatures in the world - beautiful, graceful, deadly. This tribute to these wonders of nature incorporates Asian musical influences from the various locales where tigers are found. The mysterious opening hints at the hidden presence of the tiger as he stalks his prey; then the music abruptly takes off as he suddenly springs to the attack and the chase begins. The cat-and-mouse chase continues until the definitive and inevitable finish.

An attractive and appealing listening experience for everyone.

Jacques Offenbach's operetta Voyage to the Moon tells the enchanting story of a prince that sets out on an adventure to travel to the moon. Premiered in Paris in October of 1875, the production was loosely based on the popular Jules Verne novel From the Earth to the Moon and spared no expense in making it a major theatrical event. This lively and exuberant overture contains various themes from the operetta including a beautifully lyric horn solo before concluding with a brilliant cancan-like presto that Offenbach is famous for. The musical flair and dance-like exuberance brilliantly reflect the grand spectacle of the stage presentation.
