    March from Pines of Rome (N?4) & Prelude (N?1), The - Respighi, O.

    THIS IS A NEW EDITION. The arranger has made some very small revisions and corrections and is confident that this new presentation will be very welcome. It can now be ordered on this site as usual. The manuscript version of the March has now been withdrawn.'Pines of the Villa Borghese' - Children are at play in the pine groves of Villa Borghese; they dance round in circles. They play at soldiers, marching and fighting, excited by their own cries, they come and go in swarms like swallows in the evening.The March - 'Pines of the Appian Way' - It's a misty dawn on the Appian Way, solitary pine trees guarding the landscape. The muffled, marching tread of footsteps becomes louder and louder. Trumpets sound and, in the brilliance of the newly-risen sun, a consular army marches forth along The Sacred Way, finally ascending in triumph to the Capitol to celebrate "A Triumph."Other products you may be interested in...TitleComposer/AuthorCategory/ScoringPricePines of Rome (Complete Version), TheRespighi, O.?82.00Polotsvian Dances (complete)Borodin, A.?45.00Procession to the MinisterWagner, R.?44.50Roman Festivals (complete)Respighi, O.?62.50

    March to the Scaffold - Berlioz, H.

    The journey to the scaffold of a man who has murdered his lover is the image behind the 4th movement from the Symphonie Fantastique (subtitled An Episode in the Life of an Artist). Berlioz' imagination, widely regarded as near insane during his lifetime, operated on the edge of musical possibility : his scoring for the orchestra, and particularly his use of harmony in non-standard ways was regarded as ignorant and primitive by non other than Mendelssohn. These factors are very clearly heard at work in this movement. Berlioz first made his reputation in England where his use of very large orchestral and choral forces gained an enthusiastic audience. The modern revival of interest in his music recommenced in England during the 1960s.

    Mephisto's Dance - Liszt, F.

    The original, from which this short, exciting and technically demanding piece is created, is the Mephisto Waltz N? 1. Yet another piece of music attached to the Faust legend... briefly, about selling one's soul to the Devil... the subtitle is 'The Dance in the Village Inn'. The poem behind this piece of primitive psycho-babble will only interest the scholar or historian. The music itself is powerful and enjoyable.

    Molly on the Shore - Grainger, P.

    'Molly' is a mix of several traditional Irish tunes "dished up"... one of Percy Grainger's phrases for arranging... with his usual genius. The music leaps and dances with hyperactive energy, but above all sheer fun is what is on the menu. This piece is a delight.

    Moto Perpetuo (after Paganini) - H. Snell

    As a showpiece this musical display of perpetual motion still takes some beating, and is used regularly by virtuoso performers staking their claim to stardom. This version starts with Paganini and then gradually goes its own way, finally bursting like a firework falling out of the sky.

    Old Chalet, The (Traditional Switzerland) - H. Snell

    Alpine sonorities and melodies are mixed together here from such diverse sources as the alpenhorn, via Brahms, but basically from a lovely traditional melody "High up on the mountain, there was an old chalet". In fact the melody is current well outside Switzerland and can be found equally in the Auvergne in central France. The offstage alpenhorn parts can as easily be played on a euphonium, without vibrato of course. This piece has never failed to hold the audience' attention for the full 6 or 7 minutes (depending on the performance). It is realtively easy to play and simply needs a little organisation of the groups of players.
