Family Fugue composed by Timothy Loest. For concert band. Concert Band. FJH Beginning Band. Score only. Full set (score and parts) also available: B1263. Grade 1. Score only. Duration 4 minutes, 24 seconds. Published by The FJH Music Company Inc (FJ.B1263S).
Inspired by Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf, Family Fugue uses a narrator to blend the familiar folk song Frere Jacques with a delightful story line of the misadventures of three characters: Woodwind, Brass, and Percussion. An educational gem, this innovative work is ideal for teaching major and minor tonality, melodic retrograde, dynamic contrast, and of course, fugue form. Consider using a school administrator or local celebrity as your narrator. Easy to put together, great for recruiting, and forever memorable! (4:24).
