“Declaration Overture” has a five-note motive in an opening slow section, followed by a driving Allegro where the original five-note motive is put through a series of variations. This flexible arrangement allows ensembles to perform the work with as few as ten musicians providing accessibility and flexibility for numerous instrumentation needs, while still allowing a full ensemble sound.

*The posted recording is based on the full band scoring but aligns with the suggested preferences for either woodwinds/strings or brass suggested in the score.
