David Del Tredici’s In Wartime – the first work for wind band by one of America’s masters of orchestral music – matches its emotional depth with immediate musical appeal.  The opening Hymn laces fragments of  “Abide With Me” with swirling counterpoint, while the following Battlemarch brings an ominous march-theme into a frenzied conflict with the Persian national song, “Salamati, Shah!”  Daring, brilliantly orchestrated and absolutely unique, In Wartime is a landmark in the repertoire.
