Short Ride in a Fast Machine

from Two Fanfares for Orchestra

Series: Boosey & Hawkes Concert Band Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes Score & Parts Composer: John Adams Arranger: Richard L. Saucedo

Level: 4

Composed in 1986, this fast-paced and dynamic work took the symphonic world by storm. Available here in a playable setting for school ensembles, Richard Saucedo transposed the key down a third from the original and skillfully adapted some of the more complicated rhythmic patterns without sacrificing any of the excitement and drive. A wonderful introduction to “minimalist” music and one of America's treasured contemporary composers. Dur: 4:00 – Grade 4 (Boosey & Hawkes)
