G. Schirmer

Description

Originally written for piano by Dmitri Kabalevsky, here is a marvelous collection of settings for band in contrasting styles. Dance is written in a moderate tempo and features a trumpet melody and active percussion writing. A Little Song is in a slower cantabile style, with haunting harmonies and lovely melodic lines. Finally, The Horseman is up-tempo and rhythmic, with a definite Russian flavor. Quality music for young players!
