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).

    This is one of the classics of the wind symphonic literature. However, it is advanced in difficulty. I well remember this piece from my Honors Band days. Jager exploits every section of the ensemble to create music that your listeners will will humming for weeks to come. I recommend this...

    work to any serious wind ensemble. If you like the famous Third Suite, then this piece will knock your socks off! Enjoy.
