The sound of the West as presented in countless film scores and concert pieces is captured in this homage to those who settled our early western frontiers. Enjoy the high energy pulse of an old fashioned 'Hoe-Down." Scored for younger players, Broken Bow will be effective in the hands of players of all ages.
"Though it is not from any specific film, the music has all the fun characteristics of a cowboy/western movie. Carl Strommen has put together a piece with a wonderful energy which your students will love to play. The scoring is rather traditional, but everyone has a chance to be featured. It is also a fun way to work on multiple sixteenth-note rhythms, which are prevalent in the work."
