Eighth Note Publications Flexible Band/String Series provides ultimate flexibility for ensembles with incomplete instrumentation or odd combinations. These pieces are playable by as few as 5 woodwind, brass, or string players with or without percussion. This creates the opportunity for a mixed quintet to perform these titles but also allows for performance for 10-15 players up to full a band/orchestra with parts doubling. Great for music camps, contest use or any band room that has non-standard instrumentation. The Uprising is a bold and daring work portraying a group challenging the people in power. This has been staged in 6 programatic sections: 'The Current Regime' is noble and confident in character---perhaps too confident. 'Next Is the Planning'---the rebel forces begin planning quietly but with purpose and drive. This builds as 'The Forces Gather'---louder, stronger, and passionate about their beliefs. This inevitably leads to 'Battle!' where the forces collide in combat. Short aggressive bursts of sound lead to 'Victory Is Ours,' where a new order takes their place in charge. 'Celebration' begins and builds to a joyous conclusion.
