Air for Band

Revised Edition

Excerpts below are used by permission of GIA Publications, Inc and are from “Teaching Music through Performance in Band – Volume 1”

"Air for Band is a lovely and expressive work composed in 1956.  Depending on the interpretation of tempo, the piece has a duration of approximately 3:30 and considered a grade 3 level of difficulty. Air for Band and Balladair are two wonderful works that assist with the teaching of expressive and connected performance. 

"Legato style and long phrase execution are major challenges presented by Air for Band.  This work is a beautiful, polyphonic work rooted in C major and minor with many opportunities to teach the concepts of chords, cadences and balance. 

"While rhythm may not be a difficult aspect of Air for Band, keeping a slow and evenly paced tempo will be very challenging.  Erickson provides beautiful sonorities for woodwinds and brass in this work."

For Concert Band Grade 2 - 3
