Symphonic Suite

Clifton Williams

 

The five movements of Symphonic Suite are dedicated to the composer's beloved band director, L. Bruce Jones. "Intrada" is a stately establishment of a unifying theme. In "Chorale", a new theme in the first cornet is treated in hymn-like style. "March" provides fanfare-like material. In "Antique Dance", a new theme emerges in the horn and alto saxophone. "Jubilee" presents the head motive in a festive allegro con brio.

Clifton Williams (1923-1976) was born in Arkansas. He played horn with the San Antonio and New Orleans Symphony Orchestras and served in the Army Air Corps band. He attended Louisiana State University and the Eastman School of Music. He taught at the University of Texas and the University of Miami.
