Second Essay
 
 
 
 
Series: G. Schirmer Band/Orchestra
Publisher: G. Schirmer, Inc.
Score & Parts
Composer: Samuel Barber
Editor: George Schneider
Level: 5
 
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)
