Four movements of this surprising little suite include a humbly elegant Intrada, a rousingly comic Scherzo, a reserved Minuet, and a bold March that combine to make a smaller ensemble sound musically quite grand.
Available in various settings such as wind ensemble, section ensembles, brass band, and string ensemble.
-Part 1- Only instruments to play the 8va parts are violin, flute, and Eb clarinet. Piccolo plays some parts 8va or 8vb, and tacets are optional. Feel free to do what is best for the ensemble.
-Part 5- Instruments with * (flute, violin, Bb clarinet) are optional. These may be added if violin, flute and Eb clarinet play the 8va part in Part 1, to provide bottom support and balance.
-Percussion- Percussion is optional.
If adding percussion, add in the order of Drums
