Can Can
This is one of two pieces from "La Boutique Fantastique", composed by Rossini and orchestrated by Resphigi. I transcribed about 14 minutes from the 40 minute orchestra suite and offer these excerpts as excellent program pieces, either to close the first half of your program or as an encore. Difficult but musical. this Rossini work for four oboes and two English horns. Arranged by Charles Sayre $75.00 Buy
This second excerpt from "La Boutique" is actually the finale from the suite. Again, technically difficult but worth the effort. This could close your program or work well as a competition piece. $75.00 Buy
Christmas Overture This arrangement is quite unique and opened a lengthy Christmas work for band and chorus commissioned by the USAF Heritage of America Band. All of the music is standard wind and percussion instrumentation but this score calls for a synthesizer to emulate the "basoukie" in the very Middle Eastern intro. $75.00 Buy
Amazing Grace
This piece was originally an orchestral arrangement premiered by the Syracuse Symphony Orchestra. I've tried to maintain the same nuance as the original. Some interesting contemporary harmony along with the traditional. Certainly a different spin on this spiritual.$75.00 Buy
This piece was originally part of a 30 minute work commemorating the Ohio Bicentennial, commissioned by the Air Force Band of Flight, Dayton, Ohio. Some facile woodwind work! Great as an opener or for competition.$75.00 Buy
