An American Tapestry is a continuous medley of three American folk songs: the happy-go-lucky The Girl I Left Behind Me; the somber and reflective He's Gone Away; and the foot-stompin' hoedown Ol' Dan Tucker. The setting was originally composed for chamber winds (11 players) and has been completely rescored by the composer in this new edition for full wind ensemble. The contrasting tempi and sentiments of the tunes; enlivened with unique and colorful harmonies and instrumentation; contribute to make this appealing for wind players from high school to professional. Dur: 7:15 (Boosey & Hawkes Windependence - Artist Level)Recorded by the University of Wisconsin - River Falls Symphonic Band – Kris Tjornehoj; conductor NOTE: An online perusal score is not yet posted for this title.
