Noten für Blasorchester March to the Scaffold (4. Stück aus: Symphonie Fantastique op. 14)
Hector Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique is a fine example of Romanticism in music. March to the Scaffold, the fourth movement of the symphony, captures the morbid, gothic spirit of the Romantics and their fascination with death. The movement culminates with the stroke of the guillotine blade and the bloodthirsty cheers of the crowd. Unlike earlier transcroptions, this publication captures all the color and daring of Berlioz' brilliant orchestration.
