Quick Overview

Composed in 1961, this work has many of the lively and colorful characteristics of Erb?s better known works such as his Seventh Trumpet and Symphony of Overtures even though it does not have a programmatic title?
Along with serial techniques, the motives and textures are treated fragmentarily in a developmental fashion. Tone clusters and unusual wind and string sounds are used in a controlled manner which produce a different but logical kind of musical result.
