by Alberto Secondo Gallo
These 5 Lyric Pieces are a collection of little and easy original pieces, especially suitable for
youth bands (the degree of difficulty is 2 – 2.5).
The musical language is tonal, melodious and discursive. Throughout the pieces, different
metric indications (2/4, 3/4, 6/8, 4/4) and different keys (F major, G minor, Eb major, C minor, Bb major) alternate, in order to encourage the musical growth of young instrumentalists with a wide metric and harmonic variety, always maintaining constant technical simplicity.
Replacements are frequently used, to allow the performance even to incomplete or poorly
balanced instrumental groups.
The total duration of the pieces is included in ten minutes about.
I would like to thank my teacher Lorenzo Della Fonte for all his valuable suggestions, without which I could not have completed this work.
