    Jazz Suite No. 2 - Waltz No. 2 - Dimitri Shostakovich - Johan de Meij

    In 1938 Shostakovich composed his Second Jazz Suite at the request of the recently founded State Orchestra for Jazz conducted by Victor Knushevitsky. This suite was originally scored for a complete symphony orchestra to which four saxophones, an accordion and a guitar had been added. The Jazz Suite no. 1 in three movements, composed in 1934, had been written for a smaller ensemble. The title 'Jazz Suite' is rather misleading, as the composer definitely uses the style of light music. Back in 1928, the twenty-two-year-old Shostakovich had already composed some light music. A bet among friends to make an orchestration of the popular song 'Tea for Two' in less then one hour time, caused him to compose 'Tahiti Trot'. Shostakovich easily won the bet as he completed the original and witty arrangement within only forty minutes!

    The Irish Washerwoman (from the Irish Suite) - By Leroy Anderson

    "The Irish Washerwoman," the first movement of Leroy Anderson's Irish Suite, combines folk material with the composer's own whimsicality. The score was commissioned by the Eire Society of Boston and carries a dedication to Arthur Fiedler, who conducted its first performance on June 6, 1947 at Symphony Hall in Boston. The complete suite includes six melodies which range from the nostalgic to the humorous, from the plainly sentimental to the purely exuberant. Although the melodies come from overseas, the brilliant Irish Suite is typical of Anderson's nimble orchestration, ingenious charm, and happy inventiveness. This opening movement is a jig; brisk in tempo and gay in mood.

    This new edition has been freshly re-engraved with a full-score for the first time, permitting articulation uniformity throughout the work.

    Suite on Canadian Folk Songs - By Morley Calvert

    Suite on Canadian Folk Songs was written as a Centennial project in 1967 and originally scored for brass band, although the music of the first movement had appeared in Suite from the Monteregian Hills in 1961. Until this edition, the concert band version has remained unpublished, although it has attracted the admiration of many band directors. The suite is in three movements; the first and last being arrangements of French Canadian folk songs, and the middle movement an arrangement of folk song from the province of Newfoundland.
