Of Gale Force Winds

Of Gale Force Winds

Series: MusicWorks Grade 3 Score & Parts Composer: Richard L. Saucedo

Level: 3

The turbulence and intensity of a major wind storm is effectively recreated in Richard Saucedo's Of Gale Force Winds. Based around rhythmic figures that create a wind-like effect, and combined with a playful melody, the piece alternates between 6/8 and 9/8 staying rhythmically dynamic throughout. A very brief moment of repose hints at the period of calm that comes in the middle or “eye” of bigger storms. The fury of the storm then returns with darker sonorities and increased energy as this descriptive work comes to an exciting conclusion. Dur: 4:00
