Alfred Concert Band
A rousing concert opener or closer, "Scramble" is intended to aurally depict two characteristics of its title---collecting things together in a disorderly way, and moving quickly with a sense of urgency. The theme and its harmonic structure are presented at the beginning, and its musical "parts" are imaginatively separated and combined in unique and haphazard combinations throughout the piece, all at a frantic pace. This title is available in SmartMusic.
