This powerful arrangement makes one of Tchaikovsky's most popular and dramatic orchestral works accessible for grade 3 concert bands. The expresive chorale that opens the work has been reworked for brass and bass clarinet, and its dramatic restatement near the end of the piece has been transposed down a perfect fourth so your trumpets will ring through right to the end. Mark Williams also offers some creative alternatives to achieve the cannon sounds. Close your next concert with this all-time classic!
