Finale from "The Firebird" arr. for Band (gr. 2.5)
The ballet “The Firebird,'' originally composed for the Ballets Russes in 1910 by Igor Stravinsky, was a massive success that launched him into international fame. This transcription of the original 1910 version of the score has been expertly arranged for young concert band by L. C. Harnsberger. It includes helpful cues and retains all the drama of the original score. The piece starts with a solo horn (cued in alto saxes) that builds through simple meter changes, and ends with a powerful and legendary final climax. This arrangement is perfect for concerts, festivals, and is an ideal opener or closer for any performance.
