Wind Mountain Overture
By Steve Hodges
Series: Challenger Band Series
Category: Concert Band
Instrument: Concert Band
Level: 1.5 (Easy)
A strong, jubilant melody and a reflective middle section in 5/4 time highlight this exciting new overture. An active percussion part drives the piece forward before settling into the minor section, where the lyrical melody is supported by an equally expressive countermelody. This section moves smoothly in 5/4, building to an effective climax before returning to the recapitulation and dynamic conclusion.
