Excelsior II

 

Excelsior II is a large, powerful, multi-sectional work for brass octet, organ, and timpani. It is melodic, thematic, and utilizes quartal harmonies (chords made by stacking fourths instead of thirds). It is typical of my usual “soft-core modern” style.

 

Excelsior II sells for $30.00 for the hard copy, $25 for the pdf’s

 

Excelsior II is not recorded, so the mP3 is a FINALE MIDI audio extract (not a great sound, but you can get the idea of what the piece sounds like).
