Peter Maxwell Davies: Strathclyde Concerto No. 9 Score And Parts. For Piccolo, Alto Flute, Cor Anglais, Clarinet, Bass Clarinet, Contrabassoon, String Orchestra. Music Sales America. 20th Century. Chester Music #CH61154. Published by Chester Music (HL.14020989). Take advantage of this over-stock pricing while supplies last. The solo group consists of a sextet of the woodwind instruments which are normally doubled with more regular members of the orchestra: these six strangers, now brought to the fore, are piccolo, alto flute, cor anglais, clarinet in Eb, bass clarinet in Bb and contrabassoon. They make a motley group, diverse in colour as in register, and one of the tasks of the piece sets itself is to have them blend and cohere, both together as an ensemble and in partnership with the string orchestra (which itself is used with unusual variety and subtlety). Another evident task of the work is to provide fine solos for each member of the woodwind sextet: bright dances for the piccolo, recitatives for the alto flute, a stoical song from the contrabassoon in the extreme bass. The work is cast as a single movement, which begins in the composer's first-movement style of rapid regeneration. This is interrupted by slow interventions, including one for divided strings which gives rise to a sextuple cadenza for the soloists. Out of this comes a slow movement, or sequence of short slow movements, followed by a dancing finale with its own slow episodes. Altogether this is music of songs and dances, heavily tinged with Scottish rhythms and tonalities: one might think of a magic bagpipe, having six chanters and a drone of variegated string texture.

Concerto for Percussion Solo & Orchestra by Ziek. Arranged by Nathan Daughtrey. For Soloist(s) with Full Orchestra (Piccolo, Flute 1/2, Oboe 1/2, English Horn, E-flat Clarinet, Clarinet 1/2, Bassoon 1/2, Trumpet 1 in C, Trumpet 2/3 in C, Horn 1/3, Horn 2/4, Trombone 1, Trombone 2/3, Tuba, Solo Percussion, Timpani, Percussion 1 (tam tam, wind chimes, temple blocks, wind). Grade 5. Score only. Duration 14:20. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.05385). Concerto for Percussion Solo was composed in January of 2001 as a showcase for the talents of percussionist Scott Herring. The concerto is in three connected movements and features the soloist on a variety of instruments, including marimba, vibraphone, bells, and crotales. A large percussion battery with two snare drums, multiple toms, brake drums, and bass drum is also used. The first movement, March, utilizes a quasi five-part rondo form. The movement starts with a solo snare drum, with the ensemble providing melodic interjections. The introduction builds to the first solo marimba entrance. A left hand ostinato leads to a melodic figure which alternates between six-eight and common time. A short snare drum solo sets up the middle section, in which the soloist and ensemble trade musical ideas. The multi-meter passage returns, with the soloist embellishing ensemble melodic figures. An abrupt modulation leads to the final section, which echoes the opening ideas of the movement. March ends with the soloist back on the snare drum, as it comes quietly to its conclusion. The concerto immediately segues into the second movement, Meditation, which begins with the ethereal sound of multiple sets of wind chimes. As the movement progresses, the soloist plays long, reflective lines over a simple accompaniment, on various combinations of keyboard percussion instruments. The movement builds to a moment of triumph, before returning to its initial contemplative state. Fantasia (a free flight of fantasy) immediately shatters the previous mood. A loud, cacophonous accompaniment provides a charged atmosphere for the soloist to utilize the percussion battery. A short melodic section, noble in character, leads to the initial climax of the final movement. The atmosphere abruptly changes again, as the ensemble and soloist embark upon a fast, violent new section. Musical lines are furiously exchanged, leading up to a thunderous percussive display. The mood is suddenly tinged with blues and jazz influences, letting the soloist function in a manner reminiscent of a drum set player. The final section of Fantasia begins with a unaccompanied marimba solo, played at breakneck speed. The ensemble begins to gradually join the soloist, as the movement builds to a final, fortissimo climax.

Symphony on Death & Dying by Karl Blench. For Concert Band (Piccolo, Flute 1, 2 (Piccolo 2, 3), Alto Flute (Flute 3), Oboe 1, 2, English Horn, Bassoon 1, 2 (Contrabassoon), Clarinet in Bb 1, 2, 3, 4, Bass Clarinet, Alto Saxophone 1, 2, Baritone Saxophone, Horn in F 1, 2, 3, 4, Trumpet in C 1, 2, 3, 4, Tenor Trombo). Band Music. Grade 5. Score only. Duration 17:40. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.11421). Symphony on Death and Dying was written after taking a course at the University of New Hampshire of the same name. This piece explores the emotions a person may feel after the loss of someone close. The Symphony is cast in four movements played without pause. The pitch material is based on a seven note theme (E, F, G, F#, D#, [E], C, B) and all motives are derived from the intervals contained within this set. The work was written for the University of New Hampshire Wind Ensemble (Durham, NH) and dedicated to the ensemble's director, Dr. Andrew Boysen.Out of Confusion and Anger begins as a funeral march and is centered around the pitch E. The theme is stated from a solo trombone and then picked up by various groups of the ensemble. After the theme is presented an ostinato figure and melodic bass line build to the first outburst of anger followed by a return to the opening material.Of Remembrance is a solemn movement in contrast to the first. The solo clarinet has the melody at the beginning accompanied by soft harmonies in the low brass until it is interrupted by the theme from the first movement. Ghosts then can be heard as singing voices building to a brief climax and then a return to the opening melody this time in the solo bassoon.Of Rage begins with an outburst from the entire ensemble. The movement is filled with violent brass, screeching woodwinds, and is accented by barbaric percussion. After a brief return to the material of the first and second movements the material builds to the symphony's climax where violent screaming and shouting can be heard. The movement then slowly returns to the funeral march theme from the first movement.In Of Why? the solo soprano acts as the griever asking and wondering why their loved one has left them. The movement is brief and recalls material from the three previous movements. After one last desperate cry from the soprano and the ensemble the work comes to its quiet close.--Karl Blench.

Turn the Page by Daniel McCarthy. For Full Orchestra (Piccolo, Flute, Oboe, English Horn, Bb Clarinet 1-2, Bass Clarinet, Bassoon, Bb Trumpet 1, 2, 3, F Horn 1, 2, 3, Trombone, Tuba, Timpani (5), Percussion 1 (suspended cymbal, 4 tom-toms, snare drum, rain stick, claves, bongos), Percussion 2 (suspended cymb). Orchestra Music. Score only. Duration 7:30. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.11301). The writing of "Turn the Page" was the result of my association with conductor and good friend Jung Ho Pak (New Haven Symphony and WorldYouth Symphony Orchestras). Maestro Pak and I met at The Interlochen Arts Camp where we are both faculty and we collaborate on the orchestra reading project with the student composers.Our conversations over the years have included the future of the orchestra and new orchestral music in our society. Audiences have lost a great deal of context with new music over the past 90 years, in my opinion, and new music has remained an anomaly for many listeners.So when I decided to write Jung Ho an orchestra piece, I knew it had to be music that meant something to listeners--something that would have cultural context to an audience and yet be challenging and interesting to play. And a piece that would be played more than just once.I seek a certain drama and excitement in my music. Perhaps that is why I am so attracted to composers like Mahler, Stravinky, and Daugherty. But I also have a diverse listening palate having played big band jazz as a lead trumpet player and funk as a synthesizer player.Often when I travel, especially on long driving trips, I will listen to old "art-rock" of bands such as "Yes," "Genesis," and "Led Zeppelin." One of my favorite tunes is "Heartbreaker" from the album "Led Zeppelin II." It has a very unusual guitar solo in the middle of the song--Unusual, because the band stops playing and Jimmy Page takes a motivically oriented solo, much like a cadenza in a concerto. It was the first time anything like that was ever done in that genre and was really the beginning of guitarists becoming virtuosos on their instruments. Actually, that solo had all the fire of a Tchaikovsky or Mendelssohn concerto cadenza.Hence, the idea came to be to combine the suggestion of this solo with orchestra and, later, to use an electric guitar or CD recording of the actual solo with the orchestra. It seemed to me that all the power of Led Zeppelin was certainly in good company with a full-sized symphony orchestra--Witness Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring." Could any rock band create that much excitement?-DWM.

The writing of "Turn the Page" was the result of my association with conductor and good friend Jung Ho Pak (New Haven Symphony and World Youth Symphony Orchestras). Maestro Pak and I met at The Interlochen Arts Camp where we are both faculty and we collaborate on the orchestra reading project with the student composers.Our conversations over the years have included the future of the orchestra and new orchestral music in our society. Audiences have lost a great deal of context with new music over the past 90 years, in my opinion, and new music has remained an anomaly for many listeners.So when I decided to write Jung Ho an orchestra piece, I knew it had to be music that meant something to listeners--something that would have cultural context to an audience and yet be challenging and interesting to play. And a piece that would be played more than just once.I seek a certain drama and excitement in my music. Perhaps that is why I am so attracted to composers like Mahler, Stravinky, and Daugherty. But I also have a diverse listening palate having played big band jazz as a lead trumpet player and funk as a synthesizer player.Often when I travel, especially on long driving trips, I will listen to old "art-rock" of bands such as "Yes," "Genesis," and "Led Zeppelin." One of my favorite tunes is "Heartbreaker" from the album "Led Zeppelin II." It has a very unusual guitar solo in the middle of the song--Unusual, because the band stops playing and Jimmy Page takes a motivically oriented solo, much like a cadenza in a concerto. It was the first time anything like that was ever done in that genre and was really the beginning of guitarists becoming virtuosos on their instruments. Actually, that solo had all the fire of a Tchaikovsky or Mendelssohn concerto cadenza.Hence, the idea came to be to combine the suggestion of this solo with orchestra and, later, to use an electric guitar or CD recording of the actual solo with the orchestra. It seemed to me that all the power of Led Zeppelin was certainly in good company with a full-sized symphony orchestra--Witness Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring." Could any rock band create that much excitement?-DWM.

Tune in a Popular London Style by Percy Aldridge Grainger (1882-1961). Arranged by Barry Kopetz. For Concert Band (Piccolo, 1st & 2nd Flute, 1st & 2nd Oboe, English Horn, 1st & 2nd Bassoon, 1st Clarinet in Bb, 2nd Clarinet in Bb, 3rd Clarinet in Bb, Bass Clarinet in Bb, Soprano Saxophone, 1st & 2nd Alto Saxophone in Eb, Tenor Saxophone in Bb, Baritone Saxophone in Eb,). Band Music. Grade 4. Score only. Duration 3:15. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.10891). Tune in a Popular London Style was "An attempt to write an air with a 'Music Hall' flavor embodying the London blend of gaiety with wistfulness so familiar in the performances of George Grossmith, Jr., and other vaudeville artists. It consists of two strains, like the solo and chorus of music-hall ditties.The musical material, composed in London, dates from about 1912, and was worked out and scored during the winter of 1915/16 in New York City and in railway trains.(Notes derived form "A Source Guide to the Music of Percy Grainger," ed. by Thomas P. Lewis.)While residing in London in 1915, Grainger and his mother made a quick decision to leave London. The Great War had just begun, and Rose Grainger worried about her son's career prospects if they remained in London. They boarded the Cunrad ship Laconia in Liverpool and reached Boston on September 8, 1915. Grainger merged into the musical life of New York City and began performing at the piano, earning him a wide reputation. Sixteen concerts were booked for New York with the leading orchestras, as well as numerous solo recitals. Other performances were scheduled in Philadelphia, Minneapolis, Boston and the Chicago orchestras.In the first season in America, Grainger's works received approximately one hundred performances, though Grainger was only invited to conduct but once. Although the success he was receiving as a pianist was unlike anything he received in Europe, he saw that his success as a performer was in danger of denying him any critical acclaim as a serious composer.As his career began to flourish, the need for increased travel became a necessity. Whenever Grainger traveled, he took the train. He loved railways, as they gave him the space to spread his manuscripts out and compose. He always traveled second class, and rarely took a sleeper, preferring to sleep sitting up. He would occasionally depart the train one station early and give the difference in fare to a local charity. It was partly during these trips on the train that Grainger scored In a Nutshell.In June of 1916, Grainger was invited to take part in the Norfolk, Connecticut Festival of Music. It was for this performance that he scored and put together an orchestral suite which he entitled In a Nutshell. Some of the sketches for the piece went back to 1905, and the suite was eventually published in four movements, the final movement being the well-known "Gum-Suckers March" (originally entitled 'Cornstalks March'). Despite the mood of jollity of the suite, it is serious in intent and contains some of Grainger's most characteristic scoring. The first performance was conducted by Dr. Arthur Mees and Grainger was paid $500 for producing it.(Notes derived from "Percy Grainger" by John Bird).

The language is pure Zaninelli - restless, tender, mysterious, muscular, gentle, and at all times captivating.The second movement is a theme and variations. It begins with a theme presented by the solo flute. Three variations ensue - a sexy tango, a sensuous blues, and a rousing barn dance. There is a genuine purity to Zaninelli's feel for these diverse dance forms. One senses that he has an intimate knowledge of these idioms.

The Prelude, an orchestral hymn in praise of freedom and mutual trust, accompanies the film's prologue which is spoken over majestic shots of the Canadian Rockies.The Prelude was originally scored for strings and a few wind instruments. Osmon's orchestration retains the rich texture of the original, utilizing thick scoring throughout. The entire Prelude is played molto legato and its harmonies show a delightful simplicity.Osmon's orchestration was completed in December 1987 and is "dedicated to my friend Lee Boyd Montgomery.".

Choral No. 2 for Organ by Percy Aldridge Grainger (1882-1961). Arranged by Percy Aldridge Grainger. For Concert Band (Piccolo, 1st Flute, 2nd Flute, Oboe, English Horn, Bassoon, Contrabassoon, Eb Clarinet, 1st Bb Clarinet, 2nd Bb Clarinet, 3rd Bb Clarinet, Eb Alto Clarinet, Bb Bass Clarinet, Contrabass Clarinet, Soprano Saxophone, Alto Saxophone, Tenor Saxophone, Bariton). Band Music. Grade 5. Score only. Duration 11:00. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.S11039). At the age of 15, Cesar Franck (1822-1890) traveled from his native Belgium to study organ and composition at the Paris Conservatoire. He remained in Paris for the rest of his life, working as a church organist and teaching piano and organ. In 1872, at the age of 50, he was named professor of organ at the Conservatoire. The same year he composed his popular Panis Angelicus, and as a result became more widely known as a composer. During the last eleven years of his life he wrote most of his compositions including the Symphonic Variations, the Violin Sonata, and the Symphony in D Minor. At a time when French music was often light in character, his was serious and profound.Franck's final and culminating achievement was the Three Chorals for Organ. The completed manuscript was at his fingertips as the priest arrived to administer last rites.The Three Chorals are organized in variation form. They are not as brief as the church chorals of Bach, but rather, extended symphonic compositions. Albert Schweitzer has commented that "the chorale in modern French organ literature means simply a fantasy on a formal, noble theme." The Organ Choral No. 2 fits Schweitzer's description. The music contains references to the D Minor Symphony, Heroic Piece for Organ, and the Violin Sonata, as well as settings of the Christ motive of Franck's The Beatitudes (bar 115 and bar 274).The 2nd Choral opens with a chaconne-style bass theme. The melody passes successively through bass and treble voices leading to a lyrical second subject (bar 65). This new theme develops through a series of interspersed interludes arriving at a grand, virtuosic cadenza (bar 127). The chaconne variations resume, continuing to unfold until the first and second themes are combined (bar 195). More intense and complex variants lead to a powerful final statement of the opening theme (bar 259). The music concludes with a tender and poignant coda based on the "Christ motive."Grainger's setting of the Choral No. 2 was first performed by the Interlochen Band on July 12, 1942. Grainger conducted. It is interesting to note that five years earlier at Interlochen, Grainger had conducted the 1st Franck Organ Choral in a band arrangement by his friend Ralph Leopold. Leopold's arrangement may have been an impetus for Grainger's setting of the 2nd Choral.Quite another factor may have been the composer's apprehension over the onset of World War II. In 1940, Percy and Ella Grainger moved away from their home in White Plains to escape the supposed vulnerability of the New York City area. They chose Springfield, Missouri, presumed safe from enemy air and naval attacks. It is not hard to imaging that he wanted his students to share Franck's healing message of love, hope, reaffirmation, and peace. The Interlochen program cover for the premier features Grainger's picture with the following inscription:a man of genius, force and achievement,renowned and honored throughout the world-who comes to us for the entire seasonwith the sweet simplicity of a true gentleman andthe rare patience of the exceptional teacher,with a gigantic intellect projected far beyond our petty problemsbut with a wide and sympathetic understandingfor the lowliest among us.His visit is a privilege we humble hope to merit.

Towers, based upon a theme from the first movement of McCarthy's Chamber Symphony for Marimba and Winds, was inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien's The Two Towers from the epic tome The Lord of the Rings. Driving rhythms, dense harmonic sonorities, and melodic Romanticism in this piece reflect the excitement, drama, and sheer power of the Tolkien Trilogy. This music is also about the seemingly insurmountable power of darkness and evil on earth. But it is also about the power of the human spirit, the power of light and hope that can emerge, unexpected, during our bleakest hours.

For Soloist(s) with Concert Band (Piccolo, Flute 1/2, Oboe 1/2, English Horn, Bassoon 1/2, Bb Clarinet 1, Bb Clarinet 2, Bb Clarinet 3, Bass Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Tenor Saxophone, Baritone Saxophone, Bb Trumpet 1, Bb Trumpet 2, Bb Trumpet 3, F Horn 1/2, F Horn 3/4, Trombone 1/2, Tromb). Grade 4. Score only. Duration 9:40. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.04721). "Four Maryland Songs" was commissioned by the University of Maryland chapters of Kappa Kappa Psi and Tau Beta Sigma (the honorary band service fraternity and sorority). The commission was to honor Director of Bands, John Wakefield's thirty years on the College Park campus. After discussions with Professor Wakefield, I decided to write a work based on poetry about Maryland and feature a soprano soloist with wind ensemble. The poetry, a majority of which was found in the collection Maryland in Prose and Poetry, is diverse as is the music which accompanies it.'At the Edge of the Choptank River,' by J.P. Gelletly, is very rhythmic to accentuate the consistent, pounding shore. However, Gelletly brings religious symbolism into the text and the music adjusts accordingly.'A Maryland Road,' by W.C. Thurston, is somewhat pastoral, and is reminiscent of the music of Aaron Copland or, at least, has a distinct "American" flavor.'On Chesapeake Shores: A Fisherman's Sonnet,' by Albert Dawling, is a humorous look at the "after-life" with or without fishing. The music is rhythmic, earthy, polytonal, and folk-like. There is a brief "tongue-in-cheek" quote of the state song in the translation.'The Sires of Seventy-Six,' by John N. McJuton, is the most serious of the four movements. The text deals with our forefathers and their strife for independence. Between verses there is a serious quote of "Maryland, My Maryland" (which I learned as a fourth grader and can still remember the words).- Jack Stamp.
