Expressions
Bill Calhoun

Expressions
Expressions is a heartfelt composition for beginning band that will inspire your young students’ sense of musicality. As the title implies, this work is a study in expression, which challenges the ensemble’s command of breath support, tone quality, and intonation. Its chorale-like nature makes use of non-chord tones to project its emotion, asking each performer to play with maximum ensemble awareness and sensitivity. If you are looking for that special piece in the middle of your program, Expressions is sure to fulfill that purpose.

Hidden World
Sean O'Loughlin

Hidden World
Hidden World is a dynamic composition for the beginning band, containing great performance and teaching opportunities. The opening motive is loosely based on the first gesture in Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1. In the concerto, that gesture is very heroic, but also explores a more mysterious side. An excellent choice for contest or festival.

Recognition (March)
Larry Clark

Recognition
Recognition March is a tuneful original march in standard form, written with beginning bands in mind. It contains only notes in B-flat major scale (plus A-flat) and no rhythm more advanced than two scale-wise eighth notes. This one is designed as an introduction to the march form and style for the beginning band and is a great pick for festivals.

Trolls!
Peter Terry

Trolls!
Trolls are magical beings in Scandinavian folk tales that are known for being slow and not particularly bright. This piece shows both sides of the story: trolls as the destructive, brutal thugs of the magical world, and as the somewhat silly and dim-witted creatures found in books and movies. This is Peter Terry’s first piece in the Carl Fischer catalogue.
