for: Youth concert band
Cast in G minor, this compelling original work contains all the anticipated components with a musical depiction of circling the prey and the strike. The effects are complete with the use of vivid dynamic shifts and a solid percussion contribution. All musical components are easily attainable by beginning students. Dating back to more than 420 million years ago, these continuously moving "soulless eating machines" have been the subject extensive study and graphic horror. "¡El Tiburón!" by Ralph Ford is musically menacing yet audience pleasing!
