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.
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.
This is the downloadable version of the work. A pre-printed, paper version is also available.
