Overture in B-flat

Overture in B-flat (scored for band by Wayne Robson) is a spirited composition, written in a contemporary manner (1966) and in one tempo throughout. Energetic brass rfanfares lead to legato woodwind passages, followed by a transition to the first theme, presented by brass with woodwinds providing rhythm. The same melodic lines, slightly altered, then appear in the woodwinds, while brass provide the rhythm. Next, the low woodwinds present a thought which, by repetition and addition of other instruments in higher registers, ends by leading to a sonorous theme of noble character. The opening brass fanfares and woodwind melodies are restated and lead to a brillant full ensemble coda.
