  • BLUE SHADES is without a doubt one of the most difficult and rewarding pieces i've played... so brilliantly composed - i love it!
  • xsurfacing, i also still am in high school, and have been playing in a junior college symphony, and i agree, but i think the funnest piece i have ever played was tch. 4 symphony in f minor, but my favorite ticheli piece is Angels in the Architecture, its an amazing piece, check it out.
  • My band's doing a Ticheli feature. Sun Dance, An American Elegy, and all of Simple Gifts. Pretty boss. :V
  • My band is playing Sun Dance! And I get the solo for oboe.. =) I love/hate this piece haha. It's so independent but it blends well.
  • I'm a junior in college, been playing in symphonies and orchestras since I was in grade school- An American Elegy is without a doubt the best piece I've ever played. I cried playing it as a senior in high school at my final concert.
  • Am I the only one who has heard his work "An American Elegy"? I sure hope not, this is the kind of music you share with everybody. :(
  • Legend and pure genius
  • ticheli is one of my main influences
