The original work by Liszt for piano solo (composed 1860) is impossible to play at a true galop speed without slowing down in several places. This orchestration of it should not have to slow down if the orchestra is of the highest standard. The two mallet parts are extremely virtuosic. Just as good and amusing as the better-known Grand Galop Chromatique.
Instrumentation: Piccolo, 2 flutes, 2 oboes, cor anglais, 2 clarinets in A, bass clarinet in Bb, 2 bassoons, contrabassoon, 4 horns in F, 3 trumpets in C, 2 trombones, bass trombone/tuba, timpani, percussion (3 players), strings.
Duration: 4 min.
Difficulty: Advanced — virtuosic for all players especially 2 mallet players
