Description: Even though Tchaikovsky hated the finale to the overture, calling it “very loud and noisy,” it has become a favorite of many orchestras and concert bands, playing it for any dynamic, celebratory occasion imaginable. So it is only natural that it be included in the handbell repertoire. Rick has included optional peals on ‘alternate’ bells, orchestral chimes, bell tree, and of course, optional bass drum. The final section includes the alternate bells played in the aleatoric style – like ‘random tones of wind chimes in a wind storm.’ This is certain to be a crowd-pleaser!
