Many Moons

Peter Sciaino (composer)
Flute 1, Flute 2, Oboe, Clarinet 1 in B, Clarinet...


A poignant balladic description of a memory of a New Mexico night sky, this lyrical piece encapsulates the feeling of wonder and humility felt when we stare out at a sky seemingly filled with hundreds of little moons.  Beginning with subtle percussion and a cross-cued euphonium solo, a wistful theme is developed and passed throughout the ensemble. Multiple expressive demands related to phrasing, balance, listening, and tone let you teach these in a composition that sounds harder than it is.  Use this ballad as a contrast to your opener in concert or as a second selection in festival or contest performances.
