Lou's Mountain BreadSuite for Wind Orchestra

McAlister, Clark

"The folklore here is genuine, the point being that everyone knows the tunes and gets a buzz of pleasure sharing them. The genius however, is McAlister's effortlessly assured craftsmanship allowing us to hear the piece for a second time..."

There are four movements, each of which can be played separately. The first is marked 'Energetic', the second 'Playfully' the third is a bit of cool jazz-syncopation and the last is marked 'Lively' and is only too familiar as an aid to the exertions wherever the practice of square dancing is carried on.

"...a wonderful exploitation of the sonorities and dexterity of the wind orchestra..."
