New Concert Band Sheet Music


German composer Woldemar Bargiel was the half-brother of Clara Schumann and composed a significant amount of chamber music. He was supported by fellow composers Robert Schumann and Johannes Brahms. His Adagio, opus 38 for cello and orchestra is an eloquently beautiful solo work and makes a very attractive solo feature for euphonium with wind accompaniment. This setting was premiered with euphonium soloist Misa Meade accompanied by the Loyola University Concert Band (New Orleans).

This esteemed Russian composer is universally recognized as both a master orchestrator and a master of ballet music. His music remains popular not only in the ballets themselves but also in the many dances and suites drawn from the scores. Tchaikovsky's signature on the march form is found in many march settings, including this from "The Sleeping Beauty."  As the ballet opens, this resplendent march provides the grand entrance music into the regal court of King Florestan.

Charles Gounod's opera "Faust," loosely based on the Faustian legend and the play by Goethe, was premiered in August 1859 and remains one of the most frequently performed grand operas in the repertory. One of the more memorable melodies in Gounod's score occurs in Act IV when an on-stage band marches in as Valentin and the soldiers returning from war sing the rousing Soldiers' Chorus. This march, along with the marches from Wagner's "Tannhauser" and Verdi's "Aida," are among the most beloved of operatic marches.

This spectacular tour de force was composed for the Wind Symphony of Clovis (California) for their performance at The Midwest Clinic in 2018. The work was written in memory of the composer's mother and was inspired by one of her many charitable deeds: this one taking place on Christmas Eve. The resplendent writing includes unpredictable changes of style that range from solemn hymn statements to careening passages of wild abandon and humor as well as stylistic references to the polka music the composer heard as a child. All of this is topped by virtuosic solo and section writing that challenges every performer. A remarkable work for upper-level bands.

A fresh new syncopated motive then appears, introducing a return of the initial fanfare, supported by an intense rhythmic pulse to the very end.

Santa bought a newfangled toy assembly machine, and the elves have been assigned to keep this beast running! The percussion section gets to take center stage as they portray this contraption that continually breaks down despite the frustrated elves' frantic efforts to keep it going. The favorite carol Jolly Old St. Nicholas (and a slight nod to Mr. Pachelbel) acts as the musical adhesive that holds this amusing holiday adventure together. Enjoy!

This duality of technology and nature provides the inspiration for this work. Staccato musical elements create a decidedly digital effect, contrasting stylistically with more lyrical melodies that represent the vistas of breathtaking landscapes . A wonderfully colorful musical mosaic of this vibrant part of our country.

This piece is based on a Scottish folk song thought to have originated in the Hebrides. Common people in Scotland and Ireland would burn dried peat from the bogs for their hearth fires and gather around to tell tales and dance. The music tells of a journey, beginning with a somber and somewhat melancholy melody. It soon takes on a more upbeat feel as the tempo picks up and the mood becomes more uplifting and lively.  It presses on to a spirited and bright ending.

An exuberant tribute piece that exhibits an unyielding energy and a vibrant spirit. After an impressive opening fanfare, the piece quickly transitions to a musically lyric section of contrasting repose. The energy returns with angular and strident brass and percussion statements over woodwind ostinatos. A soaring climax ensues as the opening fanfare returns for a spectacular finish.

This selection portrays his anger through a powerful and haunting soundscape that employs a three-pronged melody as a musical representation of the mythological spear.
