    Rhapsody on Overturian Themes - Christian Overhead

    ?'Rhapsody of Overturian Themes?' is an innovative concert programme/first half finale which builds its foundations from a broad collection of favoured classics, with references including:La Carnaval Romain – Hector BerliozLe Roi d’Ys – Edouard LaloThe Marriage of Figaro – Wolfgang Amadeus MozartWilliam Tell – Gioachino RossiniLight Cavalry & Tantalusqualen – Franz von Suppe1812 – Pyotr Ilyich TchaikovskyLa Forza del Destino (The Force of Destiny) – Giuseppe VerdiThe work uses inventive means to link the references, enabling it to present itself as an individual work with just momentary hints of the fragments passing almost before the ear realises. It has an upbeat side to its personality, bringing forth a modern sound to complement the classical interludes. The piece was originally written to make an impact in an entertainment competition programme, working extremely well as an exciting ?'finisher?'.Through combining new sounds with classically familiar melodies, ?'Rhapsody on Overturian Themes?' is a feature piece which can find its worthy place in the concert programme of a championship section (or upper level 1st section) band.
