Noten für BlasorchesterI'm Seventeen Come Sunday
Australian-born Percy Grainger developed into one of the most sensationally successful concert pianists of the early 1900s. As a composer and arranger, he is perhaps best known for his work with folk music. Number eight in Grainger's British Folk-Music Settings series, "I'm Seventeen Come Sunday" is actually an amalgam of two English folk songs -- the main tune collected by Grainger in 1905, from Lincolnshire, and a variant of a tune collected by Cecil J. Sharp in 1912, from Sumerset. Welcome Douglas Wagner's sensitive setting of one of Grainger's best-known works.
