This work is an arrangement of 3rd movement from “First Suite in Eb for Military Band” by Gustav Holst (1874~1934).
In 2021, because of COVID-19 which continues from 2020, many people are still in difficulty on resumption of musical activity, especially on getting together with fellows. I discussed with Mr. Shuhei Umemoto, a representative of ONSA, “We’ll need some works for solo style, and people can enjoy the sound of Wind Orchestra”. At that time, works by Holst were in the list.
I especially hope that people who are in difficulty on resumption of musical activity enjoy this work.
Remarks on play:
You can change the sound range 1 octave lower or higher, according to your technique. From bar 123~153, you can play [solo I] or [solo II] which you like.
[foot stamping] should be like ad-lib. Or, you can play some notes by your instrument. On Mallets, articulations of roll are put, but you can put rolls on other positions on this work.
You’ll need a page turner. If it is difficult, you can copy the score only for page turn.
