Description

 

Program Note

Zigzag uses playful rhythmic and melodic patterns to create a lively and unpredictable texture. A core motive of two eighth notes is introduced, developed, and passed between low- and high-voiced instruments, while a contrasting lyrical melody twists and turns up and down the scale. Surprising rhythmic accents and syncopation combine with registral displacement and abrupt changes in direction to result in music that zigs and zags in unexpected ways.

 

Performance Note

Zigzag is available both in a traditional concert band instrumentation as well as arranged for flexible ensemble. Choose “Score and parts” for the concert band version and “Flexible ensemble score and parts” for the version for flexible ensemble.
