By David Liptak
Donald Hunsberger Wind Library
5 (Medium Advanced)
Commissioned by a consortium of outstanding collegiate wind ensembles, Folgore's Months features a soprano voice soloist in a contemporary setting of four movements musically depicting "February," "August," "May," and " December." David Liptak, well known for his creative compositional style (his "The Sacred Harp" was one of the first wind works included in The Donald Hunsberger Wind Library), has written a four-movement composition for Soprano and Chamber Wind Ensemble based upon the writings of a 14th century poet. Folger's Months is a vital addition to the growing serious repertoire for vocal soloist and winds.
This particular item includes the piano accompaniment and Soprano solo parts.
