One of the most dramatic selections ever presented for band, "Andrea Chenier" has been a staple of mature and professional bands for over a century. This intense and exciting work includes some of the most passionate moments from the Italian opera into a breathtaking tour de force for mature bands. Prominently featuring bel-canto solos for euphonium and cornet/trumpet, the gorgeous melodies and dramatic musical climaxes will both thrill and excite performers and audiences alike. This striking new arrangement includes full score, and is carefully re-orchestrated to be more idiomatic to the wind band medium. Not for the faint-of-heart, and musically challenging, "Andrea Chenier" is ideal for experienced bands, and is not to be missed!
