AndalusiaBy Hugh Stuart Concert Band Conductor Score Grade: 4 (Medium Difficult) Item: 00-17102S
This Hugh Stuart original captures the spirit and color of Andalusia, the large ancient province of Spain where much of that country's tradition and culture was developed. After a driving introduction, a dramatic trumpet cadenza conjures up images of a heroic matador which leads into the main theme. This lilting melody in 3/4 time is flavored with interesting harmonies and rhythmic variation as smooth inner lines weave their way through the texture.
