For Those That Wander (2012)

Program Notes

For Those That Wander is a through-composed rhapsody for euphonium and piano with open intervallic melodic gestures and a subtly driving rhythmic and harmonic structure. The work unfolds in three parts – a gentle, floating opening; a brief moment of respite; and a driving, raucous closing.

 

The work was composed from late-Summer 2011 into the early months of 2012 for the composer’s performance in the 25th annual A. Frank and Bethel C. Gallaher Performance Competition at Morehead State University (KY). It was later revised in 2013 and published by Potenza Music (Louisville, KY).
