Today we have 'line dancing,' which in reality is not too different from the 'contredanse' or country dance of the late 18th century. The music accompanying this French dance form was written in eight-measure phrases repeated again and again. Composer Larry Clark gives us the flavor of another era with more contemporary harmonic structuring. Look very seriously at this sophisticated yet audience-friendly new work for your concert band or wind ensemble. (2:24) This title is available in SmartMusic.
