Sheet Music: Score
Hiroshima Stands : for brass quartet / Steve Wood.
by Steve Wood (1984)
Hiroshima Stands is a brass quartet in 3 movements which is as the title suggests something of an anti-nuclear statement. The first movement is is meant to suggest Hiroshima left standing (or not) the day after the bombing; a hymn for the city, surveying the wreckage. The second; Reconstruction represents Japan getting back on it's feet after the war (a kind of mini minimalist cantata). The third is entitled Debris. It begins with a tone of desolation. There is some retrospection, humming and hawing, things hot up and someone presses a button. Hiroshima stands as a lesson.
