Triangle) 3 - 3rd Bb Comet/Trumpet About The Music: PEREGRIN (A Traveler’s Tale) is a programmatic work describing the feelings of travelers searching for a new land and new lives. There are moments of discovery, trepidation and joy through- out the piece. ‘The rhythmic bass line at the beginning should be played very legato in order to achieve a subtle, pulsing effect. The instruments entering for the first time in measure 10 should try to blend their tones with those that are already playing. It is important that the snare drum accents (with brushes), the bass drum and the wood block all sound equally loud beginning.in measure 29. It might be effective to slightly accent each articulated note in measures 39-43 so that the composite rhythm is ‘more obvious to the listener. Special attention may be needed to tune the octave E flats in the low brass parts in measures 57- ‘58, All instruments should cut off on count four of measure 62, leaving only the suspended cymbal to ring through the rest. The staccato articulations in measures 71 and 75 of the flute and piccolo parts should be played very secco, meaning dry. The new tempo in measure 79 should be exactly twice as fast as the preceding passage. ‘Beginning at measure 87, each new motif should be heard clearly by the listener. Do not hesitate to adjust the written dynamics if necessary to make this happen. Likewise, the alto saxophones, oboes, flutes and piccolo should be careful that their longer notes do not obliterate the sixteenth notes in each others’ parts beginning in measure 133. The clarinets should attempt to play as sus- tained as possible in measure 128 in order to preserve the melodic line despite the intervals. A slight Jp effect in the brass, saxophones and low reeds might help the listener hear the high woodwind parts in measures 134 and 136. Note: There are places where the 3rd clarinet part is written over the break. While this is not in keeping with the guidelines of the Queenwood Young Band Series, it has been done here where the entire section plays in unison to give the 3rds an opportunity to work on extending their range. In all such places, the 3rd clarinet partis marked as optional. Note: The Percussion 2 part beginning at measure 87 is written to be played by a single player. ‘The top notes are for small triangle, the middle notes for large triangle and the bottom notes for the dome of a suspended cymbal - all to be struck with a triangle beater. A more interesting and exotic effect can be created by substituting a suspended finger cymbal for the large triangle and a large tam-tam (or gong) for the suspended cymbal - all three still being struck with a triangle beater. The composer suggests this substitution where the instruments are available. DOUGLAS AKEY is Music Department Chairman at Hendrix Junior High School in Chandler, Arizona.
