Rondo for Band

Barton McLean

About this work:

My first published composition by a firm (Templeton Music) which is now defunct and unreachable.  Therefore I have concluded that the copyright has reverted to me. 

Rondo for Band represents a more conservative style influenced somewhat by Sibelius.  It depicts a world of serenity punctuated by more dramatic and climactic sections.  It uses traditional harmonic and contrapuntal techniques of the post romatic period. 


The recording provided, made in the 60s, does not reflect the scope and power of this work, being made under nonprofessional conditions.  It is a performance by the Crane Wind Ensemble c. 1961, Willard Musser, cond.
