PROGRAM
Overture, "The Wanderer's Call"............Guentzal
The music of this overture deals with the journeys of a mythical Wandering Man of the Middle Ages. He is seen traveling over hill and dale amid scenes of rustic beauty. A variety of moods follows with the roving career of the Wanderer. At last, however, he is assailed with a longing for his home, and, with a final statement of the theme, the listener knows that the traveler has reached his native land and will roam no more.
(This Overture has been selected as the required number for Class A Michigan high school bands in conjunction with the High School Festival to be held in Ann Arbor, April 29 and 30.)
Vistas.....................Gillette
James Gillette, a well-known figure in the field of band music, presents in this composition, which is, if not entirely new, at least of a different flavor from the general trend of music written for bands. The work is highly poetic and contemplative in character, with a melodic and harmonic interest that is charming and colorful.
Perpetuum Mobile.................J. Strauss
The beauty and freshness of all Johann Strauss's music has been a continuous source of pure delight to music lovers; and this bright, merry little piece is no exception. The kaleidoscopic variations on the eight-bar theme are exceedingly attractive, interesting, and amusing.
In the Silence of Night.............Rachmaninoff
Jota.....................de Falxa
The Little Shepherd.................Debussy
Hora Staccato................Dinicu-Heifetz
Cecil Leeson
