The dose of Summer.
At the approach of autumn the shad
ows begin to lengthen and the flowers of
summer give place to the aster and the
golden rod; while the pawing of the
song birds and the shrill chirp of the
cricket remind us that the golden days
of September are at hand. The band
concerto, which have furnished enjoy
ment to so many of our citizens during
the desert-like season just passed, will
also vanish with the summer. The
capitol grounds will still be a favorite
promenade for lover and lass, but the
strains of music will not be heard.
On Tuesday evening of next week will
occur the last open-air concert of the
season. The band, under, the able di
rection of Profeseor Hagenow, is com
posed of twenty-eight pieces, with leader
and drum major, The instruments rep
resented are 1 flute, 1 piccolo, 1 E flat
clarinet, 7 B flat clarinets, 1 bass clari
net, 2 French hornB, 2 concert horns, 2 E
flat basses or tubas, 1 BB bass, 5 B flat
cornets, 1 baritone or euphonium, 3
trombones, 1 snare drum and 1 bass
Four great classes or families of in
struments are represented in brass
bands; namely, reed, brass, wood-wind,
and instruments of percussion. These
instruments vary greatly in number and
kind among the organizations of differ
ent countries, also are widely different
in the various bands of our own land.
The modern concert band is an entire
ly different organ from the military and
brass bands of a few years ago. With a
combination of instruments like Profes
sor Hagenow's it is possible to render
selections from the grand opera, de
scriptive pieces and compositions origin
ally limited to performance by stringed
orchestras. The E Hat clarinet takes
the part of first violin in the higher pas
sages, while the B flat clarinets also cor
respond to the first violin in boIo passages,
carry the air in general, and are used in
accompanying figures like arpeggios.
The bass clarinet corresponds to the
cello, while the French horns are used
as in an orchestra, furnishing the gener
al accompaniment in light music. The
euphonium carries the air in high bass
passages; the E flat basses or tubas are
the same as in orchestras. The bass
clarinet has a wonderfully round, full,
majestic tone. The euphonium is simi
lar to a tenor horn, but of larger con
struction, and the quality of the lower
tones is much richer and fuller. It is
also known as the baritone, and resem
bles that voice. The trombones corres
pond to those of an orchestra, and are
used in playing chords and counter mel
odies in light music.
The piccolo or small flute is an instru
ment of high and penetrating quality,
and can excellently portray the sighing
of the wind, lightning, and the 6ounds
supposed to come from the lower regions.
It also suggests an exhilerated emotional
or mental state, and is effective in mar
tial music, ballets and tone pieces with
sharply defined rhythm. The quality
of its lower tones lacks lustre and force;
the middle tones are sparkling and brill
iant, while the upper tones are shriek
ing, piercing and penetrating. In dance
music the piccolo carries the melody in
unison with the flute, sometimes an oc
tave higher, and frequently is used in
sub-melodies. As a solo instrument it is
particularly adapted to tho songs f
birds. Meyerbeer, Mozart, Beethoven
and Marchner knew how to derivo ad
vantage from the piccolo in tonal color
ing and dramatic effects.
The flute can be compared to the
voices of women, and in addition to its
brilliant qualities it is capable of espresyS
ing passionate grief, loneliness and men
tal exhaustion . The lower tones suggest
deeply religious moods, and when playe I
softly have a characteristically idea ,
elegiac effect. The middle tones a
soft, mellow aod tender, while the upp r
tones are bright and penetrating, ar i
are used chiefly in stroQg passages.
The clarinet has many sympathet c
qualities. It possesses a religious cb.i
acter, and also is used to imitate t'o
reverberation of bells. The quality of ra
lower register is serious, sad, mysterious
ominous and dramatic; the middle reg -ter
is seldom used but can effectivi y
depict lightning flashes and coar e
humor and pleasure.
