Item# TRK10167A

Product Description

YouTube Video

This piece was named after it was written, because it has a sort of stormy persistence and well describes the interplay of snow squalls as they are driven about by the wind during a night-time winter snow storm.

The opening section is technically a round, but it has a sort of fugal character to it. A rhythmic figure then accompanies the main motifs during the B section.

After a return to the A section comes a rhythmic quartet section, followed by the main motif once again.

This should be a good piece for second- or third-year players, and will force them to be independent and carry their line with strength and confidence. And it's a nice little concert piece as well.

MP3 sound sample: entire piece (synthesizer/midi).
