March Ponderoso - King/Rhea
Texas A&M University Wind Symphony – Timothy Rhea, Conductor
March Ponderoso, composed in 1910, is representative of a King march at a higher level of difficulty. The introduction is an immediate test of the technique of the low brass players. The first strain contains melodic materials in trumpet, clarinet, & flute, scored against wonderful euphonium countermelodies. The trio is an ideal vehicle for showcasing the melodic capabilities of the euphonium and clarinet sections. The break strain, from the standpoint of technique, represents one of great difficulty for all players. A sweeping scale passage in both euphonium and French horns leads the band into the final driving strain. March Ponderoso is dedicated to Mr. Otto Bohlen, Clarinetist, of Canton, Ohio.
