This work was originally composed for orchestra at an outdoor concert. This is a sonically vibrant overture written to reverberate around a valley in the Rocky Mountains. The grandeur of the setting is captured in some of the more expressive passages while the percussion helps to build the variety of climaxes throughout the piece. Mr. Burge re-scored this work for the Toronto based Hannaford Street Silver Band. It can be found on their CD Heavy Metal and is available on the Opening Day label. This is a brilliant showpiece for brass band.
