Legend for Wind Ensemble

Legend embodies the spirit of a hero or an important figure. The piece combines a fiery opening and transitions to an expressive and beautiful slower section as this contrast identifies dual elements of a heroic figure. The first is strength and conviction while the second is tenderness, passion, and a humble quality that reminds the masses that they are still like everyone else. The latter is often forgotten. Throughout the faster section, melodic lines contrast against syncopated backdrops and countermelodies. In the slower section, a single melodic line is passed between different sections of the wind ensemble while building to a climax. Interestingly, the opening nine bars were written while in high school while the rest was composed recently in December 2012.
