Description

Affinity by Francisco Perez is a large ensemble work centered on one of the simplest harmonic elements: the octave. It spans a wide variety of moods across multiple sections and begins and concludes with a memorable melodic motif that will linger in the minds of listeners long after the performance.

With numerous tempo changes and a short but exposed “quasi cadenza” solo in the middle, this piece is ideal for a seasoned ensemble with a high degree of listening skills.

For added programming flexibility, edits are provided for a slightly condensed version.

Affinity was commissioned by and is dedicated to Justin Schramm and the Prior Lake High School Percussion Ensemble (Savage, Minnesota). Perez also dedicates the work to his wife Kaitlin.

Affinity ships as a fully bound score and includes individual parts in PDF format for either printing or tablet viewing.
