Britton Theurer

Americantus

for the American Brass Quintet

Americantus is a fantasy on America the Beautiful in the spirit of Charles Ives. It was a response to the 2001 World Trade Center attacks in New York. I was especially moved by the spirit and resiliency of the city when I visited Manhattan the summer of 2002. Although it might be tempting to derive a program from sections and episodes within the work, it is intended as “pure” music for music’s sake, with a modified chorale setting followed by increasingly energetic variations on my favorite American hymn. – B.T.  (BQ-98)
