Quincy Hilliard (composer)
This is a dramatic, emotional work which should be played with enthusiasm and energy. It opens in a fanfare style, then moves into a fast tempo. All sections are featured. There are many challenging time changes, such as 15/8, 12/8, and so on, but it does have long stretches of 4/4 and other common meters. The piece ends with a long and dramatic climax.
