In brief... : movements for concert band / Don Kay.

Library shelf no. 784.83/KAY 1 [Available for loan]

Work Overview

I composed In brief... as a gesture of gratitude to Simon Reade and the Hobart Wind Symphony for all the support for my music through many performances. Following the completion of my three act opera, The Bushranger's Lover, this piece represents a complete contrast. I aimed for a succinct, direct three movement form. Each movement has a title ending with "ive", which, to my mind, helps to convey a sense of unity of intention, as well as brevity and conciseness.
