Mack the Knife (Die Moritat von Mackie Messer) is a ballad from the 1928 Threepenny Opera (Die Dreigroschenoper)  - a "play with music" by Bertolt Brecht and music by Kurt Weill.  The opera begins with the ballad of "Mack the Knife", which introduces the audience to the many terrible crimes committed by the central character, Macheath (Mack), a notorious criminal in Victorian London.  

The song has long been a popular standard and has been recorded by many artists, including (among many, many others) Bobby Darin, Louis Armstrong, Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald,

Weill’s music is arranged here for wind quintet (flute, oboe, clarinet in B flat, horn in F & bassoon) by Lisa Portus of  In addition to the ballad itself Lisa’s arrangement also features optional sections of Weill’s wind band suite.

The PDF includes the full score and five separate parts.

Duration: 2'30"-3'15" (depending on cuts).
