    Does anyone know if Karelia Suite by Sibelius has been arranged for brass band?

    I know the individual movements have been arranged for wind band but was wondering if there was an existing arrangement for brass band as i am trying to get hold of it.

    Cheers

    All that I have found is that Peter Parkes arranged the Alla Marcia, recorded by Dyke on the album 'Themes From Films, TV & Stage'. The Intermezzo I suspect has been penned as well.

    cheers for that info. the intermezzo is the one i am thinking of but the alla marcia is always a good concert filler do you think?

    The alla marcia is a jaunty little number with themes that are well known and easy for band and audience to remember (... nice exposed sop. part in the Parkes version though).

    I think the intermezzo and alla marcia could work very well for band. Not particularly familiar with the ballade tho. Cant beat an exposed sop part!

    The Intermezzo looks straightforward for arranging though! I just can't remember what it was the theme tune for!

    I'm pretty sure that Ken Dennison also did an arrangement when he was conducting Fairey's in the 70's.
