Variations on a Theme of Robert Schumann
By Robert Jager
Belwin Classic Band
Conductor Score & Parts
4.5 (Medium to Medium Advanced)
In the conductor's notes by the composer, Robert Jager says, "The theme is 'The Happy Farmer,' and the variations evolve one from the other throughout the work using rhythmic, melodic and intervallic relationships for their basis of variance." This major work, long unavailable, once again brightens the concert band programming of professional, service, collegiate, and quality high school organizations everywhere.
