Discussion in 'The Rehearsal Room' started by Steve Marcus, Mar 23, 2007.

  1. Who has written a brass band arrangement of this piece? By whom is it published?

    I can't find anybody in my database who has arranged this. That doesn't mean it hasn't been done, but I have over 7000 titles in there so I think I have most publishers covered! ;)

    Ravel is still in copyright, so that would deter some people from having a go. I think it would work well, but it would be a real challenge.
     
  4. Exactly! It could be a great "Own Choice" piece (it's approximately the correct length) or a rousing finale to a programme. Brass and percussion would both be kept quite busy. Dynamic range throughout the piece would be very wide. The MD's opportunities for stretching and/or pulling back certain phrases would be multifarious.
