This concert band adaptation of Mussorgsky's spectacular orchestral work will make a thrilling addition to any concert performance. It depicts a witches' Sabbath, and was used to great effect in the Walt Disney animated film 'Fantasia.' Trills, staccato phrases, time signature changes and wide variances in dynamics all add to its effectiveness. A striking transcription. (Grade 3).
