Beall-Affirmation (Study score w/solo part)-Solo M/P/Orch - Product Information

Andrew Beall's Affirmation is a major work for solo percussion with orchestra. It is in three movements,
featuring a different set of instruments from the soloist (movement 2 features only the marimba).

I. DRIVEN
Every soul is driven to discover its purpose in life - to affirm its worth. For a few lucky ones, the purpose is revealed at a young age; for others the search can be a long, anxiety-filled, sometimes even frenzied journey. Full of confusion, panic, and the insistent "get on with your life" from well-meaning people, the search can quickly spiral into depression, overwhelming pressure, and ultimately complete exhaustion.....

II. DREAM ADAGIO
And then, almost organically, a ray of hope breaks through the depths of gloom. A glimpse of passion, a dream manifesting, one's purpose begins to dawn. Tears dry and energy is reborn. Hope rises forth as the dream begins to develop with a clear meaning. The feeling is euphoric.

III. DANCE OF IDENTITY
The journey is not over. A struggle remains as the soul learns how to embrace its new-found passion. Courage and perseverance must blossom to sustain through the new frightening risks encountered along this un-chartered path. But, as hope promises, a defining moment finally arrives, as the soul calls this identity its own. Feeling truly alive, perhaps for the first time, a celebration bursts forth! The search is over! The soul dances with meaning, passion, identity! Value, triumph, affirmation!
