Carnival of the Insects by Bruce Fraser. For concert band (1st Flute, 2nd Flute, Oboe*, 1st Bb Clarinet, 2nd Bb Clarinet, 3rd Bb Clarinet, Eb Alto Clarinet, Bb Bass Clarinet*, Bassoon*, 1st Eb Alto Saxophone*, 2nd Eb Alto Saxophone*, Bb Tenor Saxophone*, Eb Baritone Saxophone*, 1st Bb Trumpet, 2nd Bb Trumpet, 3rd). Band Music. Grade 3.5. Score and parts. Duration 8:30. Published by C. Alan Publications (CN.R10238).

Inspired by Saint-Saens' Carnival of the Animals, this work depicts many of the insects we know and love using interesting effects like tapping small sticks. Bands may like to perform the Carnival as a complete suite or to play individual movements on their own.

Carnival of the Insects was commissioned by the National School Band Association and was first performed at the Scottish Festival organized by NSBA and Brian Duguid of West Lothian Arts on May 12, 2001. The music letters SBA were used to form the basis of the melodies to personalize the piece for the Association. (S can be Eb, B can be Bb using European note names.) The Carnival is inspired by Saint Saens "Carnival of the Animals" and derives a lot of the rhythmic structures from it. March of the Ants - The Thin Black Line The composer was reminded of a French holiday when a line of ants would march every night from the gate of the house, past the pool and up into the garden. Crickets and stick insects Here the composer remembered balmy Mediterranean nights and the sound of crickets. An interesting effect is to have small groups of players around the performance venue randomly tapping small sticks throughout this movement. Insectivores These are the creatures which eat insects and the music has a dramatic scary feel to it with a chase in the middle. Metamorphosis This is where the caterpillar changes into a butterfly. The Euphonium melody will strike the listener as being very similar to "The Elephant." The Bug Parade This is a grand finales where we can imagine many of the insects in a Disney-like parade. Bands may like to perform the Carnival as a complete suite or to play individual movements on their own.
