This famous orchestral work from the Russian master Rimsky-Korsakov is now available in this ingenious arrangement for concert band. While previous band transcriptions of this work have long been the nemesis of clarinet sections, this arrangement cleverly dovetails moving lines between clarinets, flutes, and alto saxophones, making the technical aspects of this piece accessible to better high school bands. Not simplified, but through clever scoring this work comes within reach of maturing bands. Well worth the effort!
