Suite Dreams

Band

Suite Dreams is the fourth and final(?) of my Parody Suite pieces. Unlike the others (Chester Leaps In, ImPercynations, and MetaMarch), it’s not intentionally funny and tongue-in-cheek in character. Rather, it’s a dream-like fantasia based on Holst’s First Suite in Eb. The motivic material is almost exclusively from the inverted Chaconne melody in Mvt. I and from Mvt. III.

NOTE: There are optional extra parts NOT included with the standard set distributed by Hal Leonard. You can download those parts here. Although they are “optional,” I strongly recommend you use them if you have these particular instruments available. If you need a score that shows these staves, please contact me.
