2011 Midwest Clinic Performance Pieces
Second Essay by Samuel Barber (1910-1981). Edited by George Schneider. For Concert Band (Score & Parts). G. Schirmer Band/Orchestra. Grade 5. Published by G. Schirmer (HL.50483722).
ISBN 0634018825. 10.5x14 inches.
Composed in 1942, Barber's Second Essay is a masterwork of concentrated musical drama, with a richness of texture comprised of highly charged and succinctly organized musical modules. The opening theme has a definite American flavor, which is followed by a fugal section that evolves from simple tonal patterns to polytonality. After an intensely rhythmic third section, all elements are combined in a huge climax and coda that round off the work. Expertly transcribed for symphonic band by Dr. George Schneider, this is certain to find its place in the standard repertoire for mature ensembles. Dur: 11:00 (Grade 5).
