COMPOSITIONS


Five musical vignettes demonstrating this wonder of nature are joined to create this refreshing new work. Opening with sounds that conjure the image of formations, Glaciers builds to grandiose proportions. As the work develops, listeners are drawn to the destruction of the massive ice structure as it crashes to the sea below and concludes with vivid musical imagery signaling the battle for the glacier’s survival and the beginning of the cycle once again. A stunning addition to the concert band repertoire! (5:18)
