Grade 5 Winner of the prestigious 1999 Schirmer competition for young composers, this significant work with expanded instrumentation brings Stephen Beck to the forefront of contemporary literture for bands. The Wild Rumpus was inspired by the childrens book, Where The Wild Things Are, by Maurice Sendak. Near the middle of the story, the hero, a young boy named Max, discovers the world of the Wild Things, and is crowned king of the Wild Things. At that point, Max shouts Let the wild rumpus start! Composed in two movements - I. Howling, Swinging and II. Marching.
