SNOW! for Concert Band captures the feeling of a beautiful winter’s morning.
After a crisp opening, the music describes an ever-increasing snow-fall, slowly to start, then with stronger and more frequent flurries, before leading into a melody which develops the opening’s semitone motif into a pleasant tune featuring the trumpet.
The ending underlines the reality of a snow-fall and the realisation of the difficulties of life; with snow on the roads and pavements.
But – in true Disney style, everything turns out fine in the end!
