Breaking Point 

Brian Balmages
Grade 4

Written over a several month period when the composer’s father was dying, the composer states: “Throughout this entire experience, I have reached my own breaking point. Over and over again. So I fall apart, put myself together, and am then broken all over again.” One of the most emotional and powerful pieces Balmages has ever written, there are moments of untamed beauty, anger, rage, hope, despair, and frustration. Once you perform this one, you will never forget it.
