March Russe (Gr. 4)
is a transcription by the French composer, Gustave Louis Ganne. The march opens with the trumpets/horns and band in a call/response setting. This work is particularly effective when attention is given to the accents and the balance between the winds and the percussion.

Moresca: A Symphonic Pantomime (Gr. 5)
was commissioned by the University of Nebraska at Omaha, Symphonic Wind Ensemble, James Saker, Conductor. Its premiere performance was February 28, 1980, by the University of Nebraska at Omaha Symphonic Wind Ensemble. This work is a skillful blend of both the medieval Spanish dance form and contemporary ballet. Through a set of dance variations which contrast in mood and meter, the work unfolds through challenging rhythmic patterns and interwoven individual parts which challenge each instrument, especially the percussionists. The creative use of repetition assists in the process of teaching and learning the piece. This is truly one of the most skillful compositions written by Claude T. Smith.

Overture on an Early American Folk Hymn (Gr. 4)

Publisher: Wingert-Jones   

   

Overture Romantique (Gr. 5+)

Publisher: Wingert-Jones   

   

Oxford Point Overture (Gr. 3)
subtitled "A Festival Fanfare Selection" opens dramatically and then gracefully changes into an andante section and later returns to a powerful ending. Some parts are cross-cued with 7/8 bars, quarter-note triplets, accents off the beat and driving eighth notes. All of these add to the intensity of this overture. The percussion parts require 5 players and a solo opportunity is given to the trumpet for eight measures. This is a favorite for middle level bands!

Prelude and Toccata (Gr. 5)
was commissioned by the VanderCook College Band, Victor Zajec, conductor, to commemorate the 41st Anniversary of the Midwest International Band and Orchestra Clinic. It was performed at this convention in 1987, the same week which Claude T. Smith passed away. This is an extremely difficult piece with a bass clarinet cadenza and solos for the alto saxophone and flute. This is one of Claude's most difficult later works and will be a challenge for outstanding high school, university and professional bands.

Prelude for Band (Gr. 4)
was written for the Ladue, MO High School Band, Tom Poshak, director. Skillfully written (with careful selection of range, keys, articulations and patterns), this selection sounds much more difficult than it really is. This piece is one of the most well-designed melodic works of Claude T. Smith.
