American Visions

Mark Lortz (composer)
Flute 1, Flute 2, Oboe, Clarinet 1 in B, Clarinet...


Composed to embody the sense of American vigor and patriotism, this fast-paced and energetic fanfare, concert opener or contest selection features rousing brass fanfares, lively woodwind motives, and driving percussion.  Using a simple motive that alternates between duple and triplet rhythms, this is a great selection to use for teaching the difference between the two.  A contrasting middle section can be used for developing characteristic warm concert band sounds while a return to the initial material with an additional countermelody can be used for balance and blend development.
