MusicWorks – Grade 5 Shooting Stars


Richard L. Saucedo Begin or end your next concert with this dynamic and challenging new work from Richard Saucedo! Filled with rich musical imagery, the opening section features prominent roles for alto and soprano sax soloists while the percussion section provides a pulsating ostinato accompaniment.

Finale from Symphony No. 1 (Revised Edition)


Kalinnikov/trans. Glenn Cliffe Bainum/ed. Christopher Heidenreich The skillful transcriptions of the late Glenn Cliffe Bainum have proven to be a standard by which others are measured. This transcription is one of Mr. Bainum’s most monumental works. Basile Kalinnikov, a contemporary of Tchaikovsky, died prematurely at 35 just as he was establishing himself as one of the great Russian composers. Originally published in 1958, this new edition features a revised full score and parts for optional antiphonal brass choirs.

MusicWorks – Grade 4


Samuel R. Hazo Combining brash and aggressive rhythmic figures along with more gentle moments and inventive textures, this impressive work by Samuel Hazo is truly a standout for advanced bands. The piece is built around a four-note motif, which is developed and expanded throughout. A middle section features more of a jazzy flavor with Samuel r. HAZO saxes in the spotlight accompanied by finger snaps. The rhythmic intensity returns, building towards a glorious full ensemble affirmation and bringing this exciting work to a powerful conclusion.

Robert Buckley This exciting, innovative new work from Robert Buckley was commissioned by the Troy University Symphony Band in honor of the 37th annual Southeastern United States Concert Band Clinic in Alabama. Using a recurring two-measure loop, this uniquely constructed piece is built up around various musical building blocks that are constantly evolving and transforming. The music is dramatic and dynamic, with full-blown ensemble passages suddenly dropping to quiet, powerful moments without ever losing the music’s continuous drive. Following an exotic, bluesy middle section the piece builds, accelerating to a thrilling, rhythmic, percussive finish. A real tour de force!

Samuel R. Hazo Translated from Gaelic as “Eternal September,” this marvelous setting for band is designed to take each listener back to their own vivid fall memories on a college campus. Commissioned by the University of Notre Dame and premiered at their Carnegie Hall performance in 2010, this work is also dedicated to the composer’s father, Dr. Samuel J. Hazo, a 1949 graduate of Notre Dame. Dr. Hazo’s poem “Home Are the Sailors” is incorporated in the middle of the piece.

Richard L. Saucedo This intense and emotional work was commissioned by the Indiana Music Educators Association, and was premiered at the 2011 IMEA Convention with the composer conducting. Written as a gift to longtime friend of music education, Dr. Tim Lautzenheiser, the piece is basically lyrical in nature with beautiful lines and colors. A brief faster section, in the words of the composer, “describes that uncomfortable time when we are desperately trying to find ourselves.” The piece ends on a solemn yet reaffirming note, reminding us of the importance of guides and mentors along life’s pathway.

Jay Bocook Dating from the 1600s, the folk song “O Waly, Waly” (commonly known as “The Water is Wide”) forms the basis for this well-crafted rhapsody for band. The lyrical opening section features solos on flute and euphonium, as a four-note motif common to this song and also “Carolina” (South Carolina’s official song) is developed. Jay Bocook This motif unifies the entire work. A Celtic-flavored Allegro takes over using this fragment, which leads ultimately to a grand Maestoso section for the entire ensemble. A creative and dynamic work for contest or festival!

Samuel R. Hazo The stunning artwork of Georgia O’Keeffe is no more apparent than in her famous 1921 painting entitled Blue and Green Music. Fittingly commissioned by the Patrick Marsh Middle School in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin (O’Keeffe’s birthplace), Samuel Hazo does an amazing job of portraying subtle as well as bold colors in musical terms. Based on a single theme that is manipulated and varied throughout, the piece progresses from delicate mallet percussion effects up to climactic impact points for the entire ensemble. O’Keeffe explained her idea that “music could be translated into something for the eye.” And Mr. Hazo succeeds wonderfully in translating it back into something for the ear!

Ola Gjeilo This evocative work is a wind band version of the composer’s mass for choir and string orchestra entitled Sunrise. The piece is built around a five-note chorale theme, and the opening section features an overlapping fade-in/fadeout effect meant to give a sense of floating in space, as if surrounded by stars and planets.

Ola Gjeilo Meridian comes very much out of the composer’s love for ostinato, or groove-based, music. Other diverse influences include the World Music-infused jazz of Keith Jarrett and Jan Garbarek, as well as the symphonies of Shostakovich.

Elegy for Albinoni Master Level


Shelley Hanson Tomaso Albinoni (1671-1751) was a prolific Baroque-era composer whose works are now rarely performed. However, he was much admired by J.S. Bach who used examples of Albinoni’s music in his teaching, as well as using some of Albinoni’s themes as the basis for some Shelley Hanson of his own pieces. “Elegy for Albinoni” is a beautiful memorial piece in honor of this musical master, and uses a romantic tone to set the stage for a theme based on one of Albinoni’s violin sonatas. A rewarding work!

Folksong Suite No. 1 and No. 2 Frigyes Hidas Frigyes Hidas (1928-2007) was the most prolific Hungarian composer for wind ensembles, and his works are the most often performed. His worldwide popularity is based on works such as Balettzene (Ballet music), Vidam zene (Cheerful music), El nem táncolt balett (Undanced ballet), Requiem and Save the Sea. His folk song suites, which are enormously popular in his homeland, are fine examples of Hidas’ mature style in the genre of folk song arrangements. The first suite works up nine folk songs of differing character and atmosphere, while the second, with its recurrent structure, makes use of five melodies, creating a modern harmonic environment around them and thereby highlighting even more the beauty of the melodies. To perform these works effectively, ample technique is required, as well as an ability to shape the music freely. Highly recommended for ensembles with an interest in Hungarian wind music and folklore.
