Duration: 30' 00"
Play Audio Sample
This piece does not have to be difficult and in this version no-one is put under pressure for too long at a time. The only special instruments are one piccolo trumpet and an optional flügelhorn. The aim is to direct attention to the music rather than the playing, and to remember that it isn't a piano competition.
As the parts average 10½ pages, all the turns are at the end of odd-numbered ones so they can be printed as books.
NEW - by request, this arrangement now has optional parts for four percussionists: glockenspiel/xylophone; timpani; two others. Purchase includes both versions of the score (44 and 56pp). If you already have the brass-only version, please contact the editor at the address below for a free upgrade.
The audio track can't do justice to all the sounds, but it's a good illustration of how the arrangement works.
