Winged Lion, Thefor Concert Band

McNeff, Stephen

“Not short on colour, flamboyant flourish, contrast, reflection, passion and celebration, he explores the darker Machiavellian side [of Venice]: the hidden face behind the mask and the dungeons deep beneath the Doge’s palace across the Bridge of Sighs” (Guy Woolfenden, Winds) NcNeff’s five movement homage to the City of the Winged Lion will extend some community bands but the rewards and delights far outweigh the challenge. A very important piece.
