Eighth Note Publications Flexible Band/String Series provides ultimate flexibility for ensembles with incomplete instrumentation or odd combinations. These pieces are playable by as few as 5 woodwind, brass, or string players with or without percussion. This creates the opportunity for a mixed quintet to perform these titles but also allows for performance for 10-15 players up to full a band/orchestra with parts doubling. Great for music camps, contest use or any band room that has non-standard instrumentation.
The Uprising is a bold and daring work portraying a group challenging the people in power. This has been staged in 6 programatic sections: "The Current Regime" is noble and confident in character---perhaps too confident. "Next Is the Planning"---the rebel forces begin planning quietly but with purpose and drive. This builds as "The Forces Gather"---louder, stronger, and passionate about their beliefs. This inevitably leads to "Battle!" where the forces collide in combat. Short aggressive bursts of sound lead to "Victory Is Ours," where a new order takes their place in charge. "Celebration" begins and builds to a joyous conclusion.
