Program Notes

Grainger's Irish Tune from County Derry has stood the test of time for a number of reasons: colorful sonorities, straightforward accessibility, and a memorable climax. It is also a versatile piece, playable by both younger band and mature players, symphonic bands and wind ensembles. The broad appeal of this piece will undoubtedly assure its position atop the wind band repertoire for years to come.
