About the Composition:
Energico! begins with a concise, stately section that presents harmonic and rhythmic material which is developed throughout the composition. The festive main body of Energico! is in an episodic ABA-Coda format and mixes Buss' unique style of soaring lyricism with crisp, energetic rhythms and colorful harmonies.
Energico! for flute ensemble was composed during the Summer of 2008. The Long Island Flute Club, Inc., with support from The Brannen-Cooper Fund at Brannen Brothers Flutemakers, Inc., commissioned this work in celebration of its 25th anniversary – 1984-2009.
