Friede auf Erden adapted for Brass Ensemble by Jeff Luke 

My father, American composer Ray Luke instilled in me a love of the music of Arnold Schoenberg at an early age. Along with many of my musical colleagues around the world, I was sidelined during the pandemic of 2020, and while looking for a special piece to arrange, the title Friede auf Erden (Peace on Earth), stood out to me. The perfect harmony Schoenberg writes, in my opinion, is meant to symbolize the hope for universal harmony in mankind. In this adaption, for brass ensemble, I believe Schoenberg’s original idea remains intact.

 

Jeff Luke is a trumpet player and arranger. He currently resides in Salt Lake City, where he has been Associate Principal Trumpet of the Utah Symphony since 2003.

 

 

Friede auf Erden arranged for 4 Trumpets in C, 4 Horns in F, 2 Trombones, 1 Bass Trombone

The facsimile edition – prepared 110 years after the work was composed – unites two autograph music manuscripts of the choral work that displays “the most artful polyphony, most wonderful tonal effect, and sublimest expression” (Anton Webern).

Peace on Earth, op. 13 by Arnold Schönberg is part of the traditional choral music repertoire. The text of this a-cappella chorus, composed in 1907 for a competition organized by the Steiermärkischer Musikverein, was taken from a Christmas poem written by Conrad Ferdinand Meyer.

The poem begins with the promising message of peace from the Christian Christmas story, and then depicts the history of the world after Christ’s birth as a time of war in which the belief in justice and peace had been retained, however; a peace that promises to become reality for future generations.
