The Woolly Mammoth March was inspired by the long extinct giant creatures that once roamed this earth. Starting with a brass fanfare, much of the music is heavy, demonstrating the size and weight of the mammoths. Later, a contrasting softer section shows the more gentle side of this mammal. The work closes with thunderous stomping. In the last bars of the piece (49-56) the musicians are encouraged to stomp in the shown rhythm when playing sustained notes (if possible).
This work is now available though JW Pepper and our other distributors.
