It has been quite a number of years since I composed them. KARANKAWA for symphonic band was composed in 1993 and POSTCARDS FROM LUCCA in 2000. Both works were truly labors of love in the highest sense of the word. “Postcards” was a commission by the United States Air Force Heritage of America Band in Virginia. Karankawa was originally written for symphony orchestra and was reorchestrated for symphonic band shortly thereafter. You can read about each work on my website, under “Catalogue of Works” and then “Wind Ensemble”. Click on the titles.
But the good news is- you can now rent the score and parts directly from me. Thanks to the generous help of many friends of mine, we have managed to put together useable parts and a full score of each work. Karankawa has a duration of about 9 minutes and “Postcards” is in three movements (La Fattoria a la Mattina, Portrait of Puccini, Lucca From the Sky) and lasts about 15 minutes. Both works are relatively challenging but are easily approachable by university level wind ensembles, semi-professional bands and military concert bands.
If you are interested in renting one of these works from me, or if you would just like more information about them, please do not hesitate to contact me at : email@example.com.
