Ernst Krenek’s Three Merry Marches, Op. 44, Gordon Jacob’s Old Wine in New Bottles, and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Serenade in C Minor, KV 388 are three vastly different chamber pieces that have become known as staples in the wind band repertoire. Each piece is from a different time period and has its own unique sound. This guide is meant to give conductors a brief insight into each piece as a starting point in score study and performance preparation. Each chapter provides historical background information about the composer and the piece, an analysis of one of the movements, and rehearsal and performance strategies for the movement discussed in the previous section.
