outstanding overture begins with a declamatory statement
in the woodwinds. The heroic melody subsides to a
softer section which still retains the energy of the
piece. A beautiful lyrical section places emphasis
on musicality with plenty of opportunities for rubato.
The return of the opening theme brings the work to
a triumphant conclusion. Very characteristic of Robert
Sheldon's exceptional writing for young bands.
