Persis (Grade 4 - Score and Parts). Composed by James L Hosay. For Concert Band. Curnow Music Concert Band. Grade 4. Curnow Music #045200. Published by Curnow Music (HL.44003500).

Mysterious Middle Eastern modalities, colorful orchestration, and a stunning “chase” combine to make James Hosay's PERSIS (another name for Persia) a very special offering for your next concert. An enchanting and poignant love theme played by the oboe (cued for flute) is surely one of the most beautiful passages written for concert band in quite some time.

  • February 23, 2012 BEAUTIFUL!

    This song is absolutely stunning. Unfortunately it is difficult for the for me to play (Bb clarinet). But if you are up for a challenge, I wouldn't hesitate. I was up for it, and, after a few hours of practicing, I got it down. :) Also, I would hate to...

    leave out the INCREDIBLE oboe solos! Two of my friends play oboe and they really enjoyed playing the song. So, if you play oboe and are playing this song, really strive for a solo if you want to have tons of fun! We played this song for our last concert and it was a total blast! -Ellis

  • April 08, 2008 Beauty comes in many forms

    We're playing this song in our wind ensamble right now and the love melody just pierces my heart, I've never heard another song to make my emotions soar and decline in such a manner...beauty comes in many forms and song is one of them. Persis is excellent...

    in it's composition and structure, it is true that the clarinets have tough parts, but hey, at least it's not dance of the jesters! Trumpets and Oboes are beautiful in this piece

  • April 12, 2007 James Hosay was NOT a clarinet player

    His song is difficult for the Bb clarinets throughout the song. Though, it has a beautiful oboe solo and an excellent melody. My favorite concert band song.
