Symphonic Overture

James Barnes

 

Symphonic Overture opens with an impressive maestoso brass fanfare. It soon breaks into a smoothly flowing allegro vivo, with subtle punctuations in the brass. After a lyrical slower section, it returns to allegro with a brilliant, brassy finish.

 James Barnes (b. 1949) teaches and conducts at the University of Kansas. His numerous works for concert band are extensively per- formed. He has accepted commissions to compose works for all five of the major military bands in Washington, D.C.
