An impressive arrangement of the well known Fanfare from the 1912 ballet "La Peri" by French composer Paul Dukas. Expertly scored to retain the brilliant sound of the original which can be best described as a mix of Romantic tonal harmonies and Impressionistic orchestration techniques that create a distinctly French composition. Great music expertly transcribed!
