Percy Grainger described his Lincolnshire Posy as a “bunch of musical wildflowers.” The work is based on folk songs collected in Lincolnshire, England, in 1905-06.

Country Band March, written by Yale’s own Charles Ives (1898), is a wonderful parody of the realities of performance by a country band. From its “out of tune” introduction to the pandemonium which reigns at the close, the March never fails to excite.

Edward Elgar dedicated his Enigma Variations “to my friends pictured within,” each variation being an affectionate portrayal of one of his circle of close acquaintances. This classic band arrangement by Earl Slocum is reminiscent of the mighty orchestral transcriptions that comprised the wind band repertoire of the early and middle 20th century.

Ernst Toch’s Spiel for Wind Orchestra was composed for the 1926 Chamber Music Festival in Donauseschingen, Germany. It is composed of three distinct movements: a lively, technical Ouverture; a peaceful, pastoral Idyll; and a light, three-part Buffo, named after the opera buffa–comic opera–of the 19th century. Toshiyuki Shimada, guest conductor.
