In Times Of Turbulence
“In Times of Turbluence” is a dramatic and powerful concert work from the pen of prolific composer Robert W. Smith. Beginning with a soft and stately chorale, the mood quickly changes to sounds of turbulence in a contemporary setting for the developing band. Biting dissonance and powerful rhythmic percussion sustain the turbulent atmosphere as it develops throughout the ensemble in a minor mode. The percussion and winds exchange powerful musical statements leading to the final triumphant resolution in a major key. An excellent choice for concert or festival performance.
