Quick Overview

Commissioned by Carl Fischer for a school band series in the 1970s, A Little Night and Day Music is a classic of the modern band repertoire. The "Night Music" section is a study in color and atmosphere and makes striking use of contemporary instrumental techniques including clusters and aleatory. The second section ("Day Music") is a bright and brassy contrast, full of drive and an exhilarating momentum. (Only the first section of A Little Night and Day Music is included on the recording)
