An Irish Legend by Ed Kiefer. For concert band. Carl Fischer Concert Performance Series. Grade 3-3.5. Full score. Duration 4 minutes, 32 seconds. Published by Carl Fischer (CF.CPS127F).
An Irish Legend contains original melodies in an Irish style, written to evoke the sounds of the emerald isle of Ireland. The piece is in traditional ABA form, beginning with a lilting Irish jig, then a more lyrical and slow second theme. After returning to the jig, it ends with a climactic section where both themes are played together. It sounds much more difficult than it plays. The piece is exciting and will be well within the capabilities of students at this grade level.
