Description

Percy Grainger’s “Spoon River” is a setting of an American fiddle tune and was originally written in 1919/1922 for solo piano, and later transcribed by Grainger (1882-1961) for orchestra and piano four hands (two pianos). This transcription/adaptation, originally written for and performed by the McNeese State University Faculty Brass Quintet, features every member of the group in both solo and ensemble roles. The arrangement is written at a professional level, requiring virtuosic performers both in range and technique. Spoon River would serve as an excellent opener for a concert, especially as a means of introducing the performers/instruments in the brass quintet.
