A resplendent example of Tchaikovsky's remarkable grasp of symphonic writing, these dances are among the very best of his dance sequences. Transcribed for band, they are  taken from the opera "The Oprichnik," which means "guardsman." The oprichniki 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 surge to the fiery conclusion.

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.

This is a remarkable find! After the fall of the Soviet Iron Curtain, an incredible wealth of previously unknown symphonic band material was discovered, and this amazing work stands out as a masterpiece. At 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 have made this important work a jewel of their concert repertoire!
