Samuraifor Symphonic Wind Orchestra (revised edition 2007)

Clarke, Nigel

The sensation of the WASBE 1995 Conference. Genuine poetry alternates with passages of explosive force drawing on traditional taiko power drumming. A work of extremes, Samurai shows throughout a stunning, innovative command of the medium, an attention to detail and concern for organisation of texture and structure which sets it apart. One of the most memorable works you will ever hear.

Grade AB 8+ US 6
