Cambrian Explosion

Cambrian Explosion

Series: MusicWorks Grade 5 Format: Softcover with CD Score & Parts Composer: Richard L. Saucedo

Level: 5

The Cambrian period of our planet's geological history (roughly 500 million years ago) saw an explosion of plant and animal diversity evolving into many of the complex life forms familiar today. Richard Saucedo gives us an “explosion” of musical forms and surprises in this fast-paced and powerful work for mature bands. A recurring mallet and timpani pattern provides unity amidst a diverse musical palette that ranges from jazzy to celebratory. The sudden appearance of the familiar hymn “For the Beauty of the Earth” is both stunning and dramatic as it ties the entire work together. Wonderfully creative! Dur: 3:10
