Grieg : Solveigs song (Arranged for Brass quintet)

Product Code : Grieg_03
This is from act 4 of the Peer Gynt suite referred to above. Peer Gynt was a coward, liar, narcissist, man of no moral compass. Wandering aimlessly from place to place while faking multiple identities to cheat people just about sums up his wasted life. Yet, even for a man like Peer there awaited a woman with a faithful heart ready to shower him with love, should he decide to return. Abandoned twice already, Solveig remained hopeful that they might delight in each other’s love one day, and she sings the words: -
The winter may go, and the spring disappear, Next summer, too, may fade, and the whole long year,
But you will be returning, in truth, I know, And I will wait for you as I promised long ago.
May God guide and keep you, wherever you may go, upon you His blessing and mercy bestow.
And here I will await you till you are here; And if you are in Heaven, I'll meet you there.
This beautiful melody is performed regularly by soprano’s and again we think it is also ideal for brass ensemble.
Technically we would class this as fairly easy
No. of Players : 5 Difficulty : Fairly Easy Arranged by : Mark Leigh

In most cases, this is the arrangment being played back using the Sibelius video export facility, but in some cases this is an actual performance by groups commissioned by Undiscovered Brass to actually perform the arrangment.
