Variations On A Korean Folk Song Composed by John Barnes Chance. For Concert Band. Published by Boosey & Hawkes Inc. (Catalog # 48006494, UPC: 073999784190)

John Barnes Chance became familiar with the folksong Geen Arrirang ("Long Horizon") while serving in Seoul, Korea, with the Eighth U.S. Army Band in 1958-59. It is the song of a woman who does not want the man she loves to leave her. The work consists of the opening theme and five distinct variations. The piece, which Chance dedicated to his wife, won the American Band Association's prestigious Ostwald Award in 1966 and is a staple of the symphonic band repertoire.
