Tuba or Bass Trombone & Piano - moderately advanced

SKU: CY.CC2552

Composed by Amy Marcy Beach. Arranged by Ralph Sauer. 20th Century American. Solo part and piano score. Published by Cherry Classics (CY.CC2552).

Amy Beach's Eskimos, Opus 64 composed in 1907 was written originally for Piano solo and is set in four descriptive vignettes:
1. Arctic Night
2. The Returning Hunter
3. Exiles
4. With Dog-Teams

Beach used melodies from eleven Inuit songs she discovered from an early recording and set them to "European" harmonies.

Mr. Sauer's arrangement of this unique music is playable by moderately advanced performers. The four movements total about 10 minutes of music in length.

The mp3 sample is a clip taken from a live masterclass recital at the 2012 Academy of the West Festival performed by Trombonist Kensey Chellis and Pianist Chorong Park.
