Fire of Eternal Glory (Novorossiyek Chimes)

Series: G. Schirmer Band/Orchestra Publisher: G. Schirmer, Inc. Format: Softcover Full Score Composer: Dmitri Shostakovich Arranger: James Curnow

Level: 3

Although considered to be a small work in Shostakovich's catalog, “The Fire of Eternal Glory” was one of his best known works in the USSR. A recording of the piece, originally written for the war memorial in Novorossiyek, has been playing continuously at that location since its construction in 1960, possibly making it one of the most frequently played pieces of classical music in existence. James Curnow's arrangement for young band begins with delicate sounds from the bells, and builds to a tremendous climax for full band. Dur: 2:30
