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. (18:30)
