Syncopation in Blue
(for Concert Band)


 

"Syncopation in Blue" (for Concert Band) is an original composition by Mark Wolfram.

Syncopation truly came of age in the era of Ragtime - but was made most popular in the Roaring 20s. From there on it was a staple of classical and popular music cultures, be it George Gershwin or Benny Goodman.

"Syncopation in Blue" (for Concert Band) employs all types of syncopation: on the beat, off the beat and even unusual melodic rhythms - all couched in a "bluesy" tonality. While sounding light and fun, this piece challenges even the best ensemble's grasp of style, articulation, precision and phrasing. At home in either a serious or "pop" setting, "Syncopation in Blue" (for Concert Band) is sure to be a favorite of audiences and musicians alike!

"Syncopation in Blue" (for Concert Band) is a GRADE 5 composition which has a duration of approximately 4:00.
