An aural scrapbook of music heard during the 19th century: 1. Washington’s March at the Battle of Trenton by James Hewitt (1770 - 1827), 2. Farewell, Thou Dear Country by G. F. Stanbury (1800 - 1845) 3. Waltz by F. A. Vogel, 4. Reel and Hornpipe (Buckley's Favorite Reel and Saratoga Hornpipe). For wind nonet. E-flat and B-flat contra bass clarinet parts are provided to substitute for contrabassoon or double bass.
Little March for Small Band was composed for the 1962 Fourth of July celebration at the Yale Summer School of Music and Art in Norfolk, Connecticut. A few wind players prepared a "band concert" suitable for the occasion. A visiting musician, Les Thimmig, later of the University of Wisconsin, volunteered to play bass clarinet. The piece is dedicated to him. Scored for 2 flutes (2nd / piccolo), 2 oboes, 2 B-flat clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns in F, Bf-lat trumpet, trombone and double bass.
Not the famous piece in D Minor! The Prelude is from 12 Little Preludes; the Fugue is from Miscellaneous Klavier Pieces. A good concert opener. The Prelude is Bach’s, the Fugue probably Kellner’s. Grade: Moderate.
From the distance, they come closer, pass us, recede into the distance.
The first Bagatelle from the Six Bagatelles for piano, Op.126. In the key of G with a short clarinet 'eingang'. Parts for A and B-flat clarinet parts are included. A good introductory work for any program or a fine encore when you want to calm down the crowd. Moderately difficult.
A single movement inspired by watching people walk - fast, slow, with purpose, aimlessly - on a sidewalk. Dedicated to the Tower Duo: For Erin Helegson Torres and Michael Rene Torres. Relatively demanding with a difficulty rating of 6 or 7 out of 10 (difficult).
Unmeasured notation throughout using non-traditional techniques including: glissandi, varying vibrato and articulations, key snaps and harmonics. Unusual fingerings are given in the music. Dedicated to my friend Harvey Saltzman. Compact disc recording of the work included with the performance score. RECORDED by the composer on Innova Recordings CD 520.
This is the pre-printed, paper version of the work. A PDF digital download is also available.
An arrangement of the famous piece from the 12 hundreds for woodwind choir. Calls for piccolo, 2 flutes, oboe, 2 clarinets, bass clarinet, 2 bassoons, 2 alto saxes, tenor and baritone sax.
The arranger pouts while stating, “This arrangement can be performed without the English horn, E-flat clarinet, contrabass clarinets, contrabassoon and bass saxophone parts.”
This is the downloadable PDF version of the work. A pre-printed, paper version of Weait's adaptation of Sumer is Icumen In for Woodwind Choir is also available.
