Variations On “Scarborough Fair”

Series: MusicWorks Grade 4 Score & Parts Composer: Calvin Custer

MusicWorks – Grade 4

First published in 1989, this work from the late Calvin Custer epitomizes his command of orchestration and understanding of musical pacing. The familiar folk melody is stated first by a solo flute then followed by a remarkable series of variations starting with a brass choir accompanied by woodwind flourishes. An Andante variation features the woodwind choir accompanying solos by baritone and oboe, and this leads to a striking fugue variation and bold finish. Truly symphonic band writing at its best. (4:45)
