Diamond Variations

By Robert Jager

Diamond Variations

Concert Band - Grade 3
Composed by Robert Jager (1939-). Concert Band. Belwin Classic Band. Conductor Score. 56 pages. Published by Belwin Music (AP.BD9731C).

Item Number: AP.BD9731C

A monumental work for concert band, Diamond Variations is a set of five variations on the trio melody of the march "Illinois Loyalty." The variations are not thematic as such, but based upon fragments of the melody. Out of print for a number of years, this true classic can now be welcomed back by the band world. There are several reasons why works become standard repertoire; one look and one listen will tell you why this work has achieved this vaulted status. (13:37)

    I remember this work from my Honors Band days. The given label of medium easy is wrong. This is an advanced work for a wind symphony of high caliber. Most likely, this work falls into the category of grade 6. Every section in the ensemble is exploited in this grand...

    work. If you have ever performed Jager's Third Suite, you will definitely find Diamond Variations to be to be a classic that your listeners will remember for years to come. I highly recommend this work for any serious wind ensemble. Enjoy!!
