Description About the Composer

(Level IV) This Kiss - An original composition inspired by the wedding of Romeo and Juliet (part of the University of Northern Colorado's Romeo and Juliet Project). This Kiss is the musical depiction of the masked ball where Romeo and Juliet first meet. Composer John Hollenbeck created a “Romeo” motive, a “Juliet” motive, and a concise musical theme based on Shakespeare's sonnet form. These musical elements are developed almost as if being used to score the scene for a film– quickly cutting from intimate conversations to full dance scenes, and treating individual musicians as if they were the individual characters from this passage. Sometimes they interact in small groups, sometimes large (as in the dance scenes), and sometimes there are smaller and larger conversations going on simultaneously. The material is put together to meld a mood of sweet romance in the present with a foreboding dissonance of the future. The title, This Kiss, uses these two significant words that both Romeo and Juliet recite in the opening stanzas of their sonnet. 8 Brass
