** Stanton’s Staff Selection – 2007 **Key: Bb - Meter: 4/4Rhythms: whole, half, quarter, and 8th notes; 16th note patterns in snare drumTeaching Concepts: phrasing, accents, counting, tempo changes, fugue
Valiance is a great concert opener for your advancing first or second-year players or for an assembly or ceremony. Your students will play the basic melody with confidence making it perfect for concentrating on style. The percussion writing including 16th note patterns in the snare drum and the use of timpani and chimes (occasionally exposed) make this overture majestic. The fugal section in which the woodwinds and brass state the melody two measures apart is a great opporunity to discuss fugal writing and work on balanced playing. Impress your audience with this bold overture! (2:14)
