Hyperbole by Robert Sanderl was originally composed in 2012 and has since gone through several iterations. As Sanderl describes, “this piece has no deep meaning or programmatic element, it is simply meant for fun.” It consists of four main sections in the beginning, then an optional solo section, followed by a recap and a coda. The optional solo section can be adapted to fit the skills of the soloist and can be performed on any instrument. Built on the stylistic elements of jazz and prog-rock, this ensemble piece would be a perfect fit for any collegiate recital.
