Hey, some of those works you listed are Orchestral pieces, NOT wind ensemble works. Sure they have been transcribed for Wind Ensembles.

I'm sure he or she meant the wind ensemble transcription, not the orchestral version. Though as far as I know, the only movement of Shostakovich's 5th that has been transcribed for WE is the fourth movement.

While it’s been a bit over 20 yrs, I would say my favorites were :
Armenian Dances
Variations on a Korean Folk Song
Most any thing by Reed
Blue Lake by Chance

Looking back though, pretty much anything put in front of us was always fun, challenging, and wonderful to play.


AVHS '79-'82

Remember: two different Alford's. "Army of the Nile" was written by Englishman Kenneth J. Alford (though that was just his pen name); "The Purple Carnival" was written for the Northwestern University marching band by American Harry L. Alford.
