An ambitious, but supremely joyous piece of music written for brass quintet. We hear a theme passed along to each musician--heard continuously through the entire work as it is transposed into every scale available in the key of E-major (that's why it's spelled with an E!). The surrounding rhythms and harmonies react to each transposition--and they are reluctant to yield to the evolving character of the theme in each disguise--until they violently shatter the theme. The theme endures, but returns from an unexpected direction to take hold to the finish. Performed by the Beer City Brass, based in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
