(Maryland, my Maryland). 2 Trompeten, Horn in F/Flügelhorn, Posaune, Tuba. Partitur und Stimmen.
After initially introducing the theme in a mere „cloud of sound“, the piece, then, starts off in a Cajun/New Orleans groove. All the voices have their solo spots. More and more independent voices join in falling into the groove and, thus, intensifying the tune: The brass family is in high Christmas spirits. Shortly after the climax – Is it the turkey or the presents? – the festivities are concluded in a short and classical manner. But, wait! It is a little musical joke that finally rounds the evening off. intermediate
