The Hounds of Spring

A Concert Overture for Winds

Series: MusicWorks Grade 3 Format: Softcover Score & Parts Composer: Alfred Reed Arranger: Robert Longfield

Level: 3

Alfred Reed (1921-2005) was one of America's most prolific and frequently performed composers. The Hounds of Spring was composed in 1980 and was inspired by the poem “Atalanta in Calydon” by Algernon Charles Swinburne. In this concert overture, Reed captures the elements of youthful exuberance and tenderness of love expressed in the poem. Remaining true in form and intent to the original, Robert Longfield has masterfully shortened and adapted this work for younger bands. Dur: 5:30
