This fine addition to the Bourgeois Editions is from Tchaikovsky's grand opera, The Maid of Orleans. Based on the story of Joan of Arc, the three movements can be performed together, or the first and last dances can stand alone in performance as well. Movements include: Dance of the Bohemians - a bright and lively display of virtuosity; Dance of the Pages - an elegant minuet scored for chamber winds; and Dance of the Actors - a fiery and robust finale ideal for any performance. It's a brilliant showcase for upper-level ensembles.

These dances display Tchaikovsky's remarkable grasp of symphonic writing and are among the very best of his dance sequences.  Carefully transcribed for band, they are taken from the opera "The Oprichnik."  The Oprichnik were the personal bodyguards of Tsar Ivan the Terrible.  The opening dance features various woodwind solo passages that display a hauntingly poignant Slavic flavor.  The second dance begins vigorously and surges forward with ever-increasing accelerandi that lead to a fiery conclusion.

This is a remarkable find! With the opening of the Iron Curtain, an incredible wealth of previously unknown symphonic band material has been discovered, and this amazing work stands out as a masterpiece. 14 minutes long, this four-movement symphony for winds is reminiscent of Prokofiev and Ewald, and is as powerful as the orchestral symphonies of Kalinnikov! Top-level symphonic bands will want to consider this important work for their repertoire!

Also titled Aria With Diverse Variations, this monumental opus for harpsichord was composed and published late in Bach's career. Few works have excited scholars, performers, writers, and audiences more than the Goldberg Variations have. The composition represents a unique blend of complexity, beauty, and massive scope. In this setting, the aria and all 30 variations are presented in different combinations of instruments making it the perfect vehicle for featuring various chamber ensembles within the larger performing group. It is a significant contribution to the list of serious repertoire for wind bands. This transcription was performed prior to publication as part of the memorial service for Lorin Maazel at his Castleton Festival Theatre in Virginia in 2014.
