Asia Minor is yet another Cobb all tenor/bass affair which will particularly endear itself to those recorder ensembles that love these instruments and that are armed with a full battery of basses. The composition is in ABBA form with a 4-bar introduction which doubles as an interlude preceding the final A- strain. The fox trot is written in Eb major throughout and is very much a companion to another "geographical" piece namely Almond Eyes (1921) also a fox trot.
It is characterised by huge crashing chords in the A-strain contrasting greatly with the B-strain which is much more tuneful. What all this has to do with Anatolia, as suggested in the title, is left to the performers' collective imagination. A great piece to practice the production of perfect chords.
Asia Minor was published in Melody by Walter Jacobs, Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
A tempo of 150 crotchets/min. is suggested.
