Experience the thrill of skydiving with this adventurous Grade 4 piece – from the anticipation of the jump, to the contemplative mood of the aerial view, to the excitement of the Freefall itself. The piece features a rare euphonium solo during the middle lyrical section. Jump!
Genre: Band | # of Players: Standard Level: 4 | Duration: 3:45
Program Notes My intention was to begin this piece with the feeling of anticipation and excitement which might be experienced when setting out on a free fall adventure. This gives way to the more contemplative mood of the aerial panorama before returning to the excitement of the jump.
Freefall was commissioned in 1998 with the aid of funds provided by Gower Music International. Having organized tours for bands for many years, Gower wished to provide bands planning a tour with an added dimension to their touring projects
