This incredible overture is based on the familiar folk song 'Erie Canal'. The slow powerful introduction is comprised of fr agments of the famous melody. The tempo then suddenly increases yielding a driving staccato variation featuring trumpets an d percussion. After giving way to a mysterious section played by flutes and low brass the 'Allegro' reappears in an excitin g contrapuntal form. Douglas Akey's Overture on an American Folk Tune is destined to become a classic!
