Bagatelles : symphonic wind orchestra

by David Stanhope (2015)

Work Overview

This work was written to demonstrate the versatility of the Concert Band, with a comparison available from the version for symphony orchestra. Both versions are equal in terms of viability as a composition for large instrumental forces. The nine movements are written largely in different styles and moods, with some humour, expressiveness and virtousity, especially in the last bagatelle "Whirlwind".
