Theme and Fugue from The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra

Series: Boosey & Hawkes Concert Band Publisher: Boosey & Hawkes Format: Softcover Score & Parts Composer: Benjamin Britten Arranger: Richard L. Saucedo

Level: 5

Originally composed to introduce the various instruments of the orchestra, Britten's “Young Person's Guide” follows a set of variations based on a melody by Henry Purcell. In this setting for wind band, Richard Saucedo presents the opening theme followed by Britten's exuberant fugue which culminates in a glorious finale and recap of Purcell's melody. A stunning work for mature ensembles. Dur. 4:40
