SKU: A0.817947

Composed by Gioachino Rosssini. Arranged by Adrian Dee. Multicultural,Romantic Period,World. 110 pages. Adrian Dee #6587987. Published by Adrian Dee (A0.817947).

Magpie was premiered at La Scala opera house in Milan, Italy on May 31, 1817 and was an immediate success.  The overture has become a staple of the orchestral repertoire, as have many Rosssini overtures.

In this arrangement, I have omitted the famous snare drum roll at the beginning, opting instead to stick with just the flute choir instruments. I also simplified the opening rhythmic figure in the interest of ease of consistency across the ensemble. Much of the orchestral piccolo part, often seen in auditions, is preserved in the piccolo part here and I have kept the piece in its original keys.

The piece is typical Rossini: lively, challenging, and fun. The total play time is aprox. 9:45.

I’d love to hear your feedback!
