Introduction & Allegro Alla Tarantella
Jacob, G
Gordon Jacob was one of the most musically conservative of his generation of composers. He preferred the more austere Baroque and Classical models to the Romanticism of his peers, and stuck to this aesthetic even in the face of the trends toward atonality and serialism.
This conservatism would cause his works to fall out of fashion in favor of the avant-garde in the 1960s, which he held in little regard. He was a skillful writer for winds, and a good deal of his regard today is for his embracing of the wind band, which had begun coming into its own as a concert-giving musical ensemble. Additionally, he published solo and chamber literature at various levels of difficulty for nearly all the wind instruments, many of which are now standard pedagogical and performing repertoire. He was highly prolific and published over 700 pieces of music before his death in 1984, in addition to his four books and numerous essays on music.
