Strings sheet music cover of Forward West, composed by Brandon Bangle.

Forward West

Composer Brandon Bangle

Full of engaging melodies and driving rhythms, this first publication by writer Brandon Bangle to the Grand Mesa catalog, paints a vivid musical picture of how it must have felt to be headed west in a covered wagon.

The anticipation of the trip to come is portrayed by a quiet opening statement of the composition's primary motor rhythm. This builds into the first loud statement of the primary theme, a portrayal of the elation the pioneers must have felt to be finally "heading west". In a gorgeous quiet section that follows, one can easily see a relaxed campfire scene under the twinkling evening stars.

This well-written programmatic work will surely be a highlight of any concert!
