Website Accompaniment to Consortium Commission
Led By: Nolan Hauta, University of Dubuque
The composed piece will be a multi-movement work for band in the style of a theme and variations, inspired by Edward Elgar’s “Enigma Variations.” The concept is that of a modular work that can be performed as a whole or with selections of movements. The work will be approximately 12-15 minutes in length, depending on the movements selected.
The movements will work similar to the Enigma Variations, varying in length from 1-3 minutes depending on the style. The difficulty level will be in the grade 3-5 range. The difficulty of each movement will vary, allowing the ensemble to pick the movements that fit their performance level best.
