Description

Rossano Galante's The Redwoods for Orchestra.

The Redwoods was commissioned in 1998 by the North Tonawanda High School Band under the direction of Norman Alexander.

Thiswork, inspired by the beauty, power and majesty of the Redwood - the most remarkable of trees - begins with a heroic-romantic Trumpet melody accompanied by Woodwind arpeggios, punctuated by Brass rhythms. After a transition, theopening melody is followed by the rich, lush, main theme (m.29) which is stated by the Horns and Woodwinds.

After the main theme has undergone variations in orchestration, a new section follows (m.65), with the upperWoodwinds playing a second, delicately stated theme reminiscent of a music box. The new theme is heard just once more (m.73) but played in a heroic manner by the Trumpets and Trombones, in juxtaposition of the original 'music box'statement.

The main theme recapitulates in a similar heroic manner (m.82), and as each theme returns it is heard with a change of instrumentation and accompaniment. After the final thematic statement, a Brass fanfare bringsus to the end of the piece, which culminates in a grand climax.
