Beach - Eskimos, Op. 64 for Euphonium and Piano

Composer: Beach

Arranger: Sauer

$25.00 USD



Amy Beach's Eskimos, Opus 64, composed in 1907 was written originally for Piano Solo and is set in four descriptive vignettes:

1. Arctic Night
2. The Returning Hunter
3. Exiles
4. With Dog-Teams

Beach used melodies from eleven Inuit songs she discovered from an early recording and set them to "European" harmonies. Mr. Sauer's arrangement of this unique music is playable by moderately advanced performers. The four movements total about ten minutes of music.

The mp3 sample is a clip taken from a live masterclass recital at the 2012 Music Academy of the West Festival performed by Trombonist Kensey Chellis and Pianist Chorong Park.
