Developing an intimate understanding of the world's greatest musical accomplishments is an important part of a music education. Every musician should have the joy of playing the music of Mozart, and the G-minor Symphony (Number 40) is one of Mozart's signature works, and one of the greatest musical achievements of all time. Stephen Bulla has carefully and effectively brought the themes of the G-minor Symphony finale to the concert band stage with this delightful transcription/arrangement. Your band won't be playing a “band arragement” - they'll be playing Mozart! Don't forget the opportunity for a music history lesson built into this piece.
