March of the Baritonettes

Description

Commissioned by the Quattraphonium Saxophone Quartet of New York, the brief to Nigel was to arrange Gounod's March of the Marionettes for four baris, and to throw in a dash of Airegin (Sonny Rollins) and Looney Tunes on the way.

This improbable combination gave rise to something zany, exuberant and irresistible (of course!), but this little musical frolic is still tight, coherent and punchy.

The introductory performance direction - "With a sense of humour" - says it all.
