Composed in 1966, this three movement work is performed regularly in contests and festivals as well as on concert band programs globally. The unique setting of this original work provides subtle challenges to the performers and conductor with enhanced interest for the listener. The movements are "March," non-characteristically scored in alternating 4/4 and 3/4 time, "Waltz" similarly juxtaposed in alternating 3/4 and 2/4 time and the raucous "Rondo." Robert Jager's "Third Suite" --- a distinctive work with charming character.

  • October 19, 2008 Simply Great

    I played Robert Jager's "Third Suite" in my high school's wind ensemble and it was really fun. I found it to have very appealing melodies and it sounds like classic concert band literature. The "Waltz" movement is a bit tricky because the meter constantly changes. The parts in...

    the "March" are straitforward, however it must be played lightly and bouncy. "Rondo" is in typical 6/8 time and goes very quick. I higly recommend this piece because it is very catchy and everyone will love it.

  • December 13, 2006 Fantastically Composed Piece

    I play the Euphonium in our high school top audition wind band, and we recently played this piece in our fall concert. It is an entertaining, yet still challenging piece that requires a lot of work, but it's worth it when you've accomplished the piece. It is top...

    notch composition and is just as much fun to play.

  • August 22, 2001 This my personal favorate piece

    I am an oboe student. And at a camp that I went to this summer I played this piece. I played this piece as a junior camper in the Junior Wind Enesmble. This piece swept the crowd off their feet at the third movement. And at the waltz there is...

    a beautiful oboe solo that I got to play, it was wonderful. It is the best piece for a band or a symphonic band.

  • June 11, 2001 Incredible Jager (like all)

    I just recently performed this piece as principle timpanist and it is some of the greatest modern pieces written by one of the greatest modern composers: Robert Jager. As a timpanist, I have to say I enjoyed the percussion feature in the first movement. The third movement is great and...

    will get any audience off their feet, just remember the band should worry about the 5-chord pattern that it revolves around needs to be played as chords. I hope you have a great woodwind section for the 2nd movement because you'll need it. Also, get your 2nd trumpets working on counting now because every high school band I have heard play this piece has killed their eighth note upbeats at the end of the 2nd movement. Those are just some of my thoughts....I highly recommend it!
