Schoenberg, Arnold – Six Little Pieces, Op. 19 for Tuba or Bass Trombone & Piano.
Arnold Schoenberg's Six Little Pieces, Opus 19, originally for Piano, were published in 1913 at a time when the composer was reacting to his feelings of the excesses of the Romantic Period. They were composed concurrently with his gigantic work Gurre-Lieder. The first five pieces were written in one day and the last one shortly after the death of Gustav Mahler as a rumored "tombeau" or memorial.
Mr. Sauer has deftly arranged these six short pieces of around 5 minutes in length for advanced performers.
