Program Notes

Percy Grainger composed this work for “six hands at one piano” in 1902, and subsequently he began a version for percussion ensemble that was never completed. Using sketches of this incomplete arrangement, Preston Hazzard has created a unique setting for concert band. The transparent and delicate lilting nature of the original work comes through in this appealing arrangement for winds and percussion.
