Sunday Music Blogging - 9/05
John Williams' Cowboys Overture is a good, not great piece of music; but it's pleasant to listen to, fun to play and the audience always enjoys it. We opened our concert in the wind with it on Friday. The themes are engaging, if you can avoid thinking about a Marlboro commercial. But the transitions are, to me at least, baffling; and from about 7:00 to 7:35 in the clip, it turns into generic John Williams what-the-hell. Oh, well.
