Composer
Keiron Anderson
Description Praeludium takes the musician and the listener on a tonal journey using multiple key changes throughout the music. Beginning with B-Flat Major and using counter-melody to create the thematic material, the music quickly progresses from one key change to another, requiring performers to demonstrate good intonation skills as they develop the melodic and harmonic texture of the opening measures, until the lyrical journey has taken them far from the opening key. Yet, as the music brings us to its final key change, the musician turns to discover that the music has faithfully and assuredly returned them back to the key in which it began. A technique not so commonly used for wind ensembles after the post-Romantic period.
