Gliere's beautiful character pieces, Six Album Leaves from Op. 51 are from a larger collection of twelve originally written for Cello and Piano in 1911 while the composer was living in Berlin. The composer most likely was inspired by Schumann's versions which were unknown in Russia.
The pieces are full of eastern sounding melodies and exploit the singing nature of the Euphonium. Mr. Sauer has brilliantly arranged six of these for advanced performers in bass clef.
