The Russian hymn “Salvation Is Created” was composed by Peter Tchesnokov in 1912. Transcribed many times over the century, it has become a standard in the repertoire for choir, orchestra and band. Composer Robert W. Smith has used this timeless melody to create a new interpretive statement for the concert band. From the soft and delicate opening phrases to the contrasting full band response, the piece progresses through multiple variations and treatments. The final section of the work presents the hymn in a more standard setting leading to a powerful conclusion. Suitable for contest/festival performance as well as any concert program, this may become a standard in the repertoire. An excellent programming choice.
