Two Grainger Melodies

By Percy Aldridge Grainger

Detailed Description

Two Grainger Melodies composed by Percy Aldridge Grainger (1882-1961). Arranged by Joseph Kreines. Concert band. Classics Series. Audio recording available separately (item CL.WFR332). Grade 4. Extra full score. Composed 1988. Duration 4 minutes, 48 seconds. Published by C.L. Barnhouse (CL.012-2091-01).

Here are two of Grainger's most poetic and richly textured inspirations. The first "Early One Morning," begins with a rather somber setting in minor key, abruptly changing to the sunnier mood of the major, featuring several different solo voices. The second "Six Dukes Went A-Fishin'," is serene and gentle, making effective use of contrasting colors and textures.
