America!, an unaccompanied spectacular for horn
by Brett Miller
America! is Brett Miller's arrangement of several well-known and loved patriotic tunes, fashioned into a two-minute spectacular solo horn showpiece. Paul Basler writes in a review for The Horn Call, "For those of you out there who have always wanted a patriotic solo horn encore/showpiece, well, Brett has more than delivered in his America! for solo horn. This over-the-top two minute, horn-jock extravaganza is sure to delight and impress any audience." Featuring quotes from several tunes, some styled in the manner of well-known horn excerpts, and a wide range, this piece gives the soloist the chance to delight and thrill the audience. A fantastic encore!
Performance time: approx. 2:10
Appropriate for recitals, especially as an exciting or patrioric encore. Difficult.
