  • Notes & Instrumentation

    Seconds, Please! is a fun piece in march style that emphasizes the musical interval of the second. As musicians know, seconds are two notes that are next to each other in sound. When heard together, they give a little more "bite" to the harmony than more traditional chords. All melodic phrases and nearly every harmony in the piece focus on this interval.

    Program Notes
    Seconds, Please! is a fun piece in march style that emphasizes the musical interval of the second. As musicians know, “seconds” are two notes that are next to each other in sound. When heard together, they give a little more “bite” to the harmony than more traditional chords. All melodic phrases and nearly every harmony in the piece focus on this interval.

    In playing Seconds, Please! don’t shy away from the dissonance but play it with confidence. “Crunchy” notes are fun to play! Equal balance between the instruments that are playing the harmonic seconds will be an important consideration. Above all, let the music be lively and energetic.
