Beach, Amy – Eskimos, Op. 64 for Euphonium and Piano - arranged by Ralph Sauer.
This product is available for digital download only.
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
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 10 minutes of music in length.
