PostSubject: Short Ride in a Fast Machine - John Adams   Sun Jan 25, 2009 9:50 pm



Short Ride in a Fast Machine (Fanfare for Great Woods) is a musical piece composed by John Coolidge Adams.
The piece has now become one of the most frequently requested and
performed encores in American concert-halls. It was commissioned by the
Great Woods Festival for the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra's opening concert led by American conductor Michael Tilson Thomas at Great Woods in Mansfield, Massachusetts on 13 June 1986. The music consists of a succession of chordal passages against a consistent beat on wood blocks, and gives the impression of a single long-delayed cadence.
It has three times been scheduled for inclusion in the Last Night of the Proms in the UK.
On the first two occasions it was removed from the concert as it was
felt to be inappropriate: first in the wake of the death of Diana, Princess of Wales in 1997, and four years later just days after the September 11, 2001 Terrorist Attack. Finally it was heard at the Blue Peter Prom on July 26, 2004.

P.S. This is what I have to play in Wind Symphony

Aaron stop bragging we don't care. And ha you copied the description from someplace.

Also, I think it would be appropriate for those two occasions, but offensive in a joking sense (short ride in a fast machine, both deaths involved moving in a fast machine, either car or plane [not sure about the car part, I'll confirm], and a short ride is like how they died, cutting their trips short). Just something interesting I noticed.

Yes I know I copied the description from somewhere else you don't need to let me know. And I am not bragging, I am just letting people know of one of the songs I am playing.
