Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes (New York)
Younger bands are showcased to their full potential with this rewarding composition with intriguing minor and major harmonies and interesting suspensions. Each performer is challenged to test the limit of his/her developing range while having the comfort of playing scale-like patterns and unison rhythms with the full ensemble. Simple percussion, including glockenspiel and timpani, provide solid support - plus style and panache!
"Vorherrschende Rhythmusmuster unterstützen die Absicht, auch einem Anfängerorchester präzises Musizieren zu ermöglichen. ...alle Stimmen ohne Ausnahme [sind] dem Tonumfang und den technischen Möglichkeiten des jeweiligen Instrumentes beispielhaft angepasst... Ein intelligent gemachtes, einfaches und doch gut klingendes Werkchen."
"I absolutely love The Quest! I played it in my sixth grade band last year, and I loved it! Now even this year in seventh grade, I want to play it again. I play saxophone, and I love how we have the accidentals at the end! My band teacher always made us play that over and over because we kept messing up, but we sounded great in concert. This piece is a definite must for 6th grade and 7th grade bands!"
