The Ballet Music of Delibes

The Ballet Music of Delibes - A Three-Movement Suite for Brass Band arranged by Stephen C Barnwell.


This Three-movement Suite for Brass Band comprises music taken from two of Delibes most well-known Ballets - Coppélia and Sylvia. The suite begins with the power of the Mazurka and is followed immediately by the serenity of the Valse - both from Coppélia. The suite concludes with the drive and excitement of Les Chassereresses from Sylvia. This arrangement retains all of the character, excitement and delicacy of Delibes’ original orchestration and can be performed as an entire suite, or as separate, stand-alone movements.
