Happy Occasion Overture / Miriam Hyde.
by Miriam Hyde (1957)
Happy Occasion Overture was conceived in a spirit of
recreation and aims at giving all the players a "say", while
avoiding unnecessary complexities of technique and ensemble.
It is built on three subjects; the first a spirited call to attention, the second a more expressive oboe phrase, and the third a bolder, striding tune given principally to the strings, in a more serious minor mood. This returns jubilantly, towards the end, in the tonic major, and is rounded-off by a last reference to the rhythmic beat of the opening theme, broadening to the final cadence.
