Otto M. Schwarz composes not only for symphonic bands, but has written the soundtracks for many films. In this piece, he describes a ride on a roller coaster. At the beginning, the cars are pulled up by a chain. High above the ground the ride begins with all the well-known variations like steep downhill slides and loops, accompanied by the screams of the passengers. Towards the end of the piece, the ride becomes faster and faster, and then comes the end. Roller Coaster must be considered as a musical sketch, and is especially suited as an encore for your concerts. Get in! Let the ride begin!
