    The GPO Wind Symphony! Y'all check this out!

    Hey everybody this is Craig here once again and I'm releasing another composition of mine. This is the first movement of a five movement piece called The Odyssey, a tone poem for symphonic band that's based on Homer's Odyssey I finished little over a year ago.

    Annnywayz, the piece has saxes in it but they're not in this demo since GPOA ain't out yet.

    Anyway, it still sounds fine though even without the saxes. I swear that ensemble building sure as HECK made a lot of EXCELLENT use in setting up a symphonic band as there are more clarinets and trumpets playing. I got that completely authentic band sound because of it. I could make that big 'ol horn section that them real good symphonic bands got, I could make a larger clarinet section, too. I have a whole lot more appreciation for such a feature in GPO. I want y'all to take a listen at it. Everything's GPO.

    Craig,

    Love your new work. This piece is dynamic and full of energy. Very well written too (as can be expected from one of our competition winners ). You just keep outdoing yourself.

    Can't wait for the second movement.

    Thanks for posting this!

    Great piece bristling with rhythmic energy.I love Homer's Oddysey,I must have read it 5 times.
    Are you going to do "The Sirens",I often try to imagine what their music was like.
