DPDan did some arrangments of Mussorgsky's famous "A Night on Bald Mountain.
Written in 1867, the work was inspired by Russian legends about a witches' sabbath. The tone poem was never performed during Mussorgsky's lifetime but arranged after his death by his friend Rimsky-Korsakov. The Rimsky-Korsakov orchestration premiered it in 1886, and it has since become a concert favorite (even featured in Disney's Fantasia).
We have two versions to present of this classic work.
The first is an orchestral version based on the Rimskey-Korsakov orchestration with strings. FrankS and Francesco has done the original MIDI rendering and DPDand has refined it. The strings in this orchestral version are from GOS, GPO, Strad and Gofriller. Everything else is from Concert and Marching Band.
Orchestral Version - Concert & Marching Band + Garritan Strings
Concert Band Version - All Concert and Marching Band
Dan did the above rendition making his own arrangement and adapting it for concert band from the orchestral score. Dan is a man of many talents!
Thanks very much Dan for doing this. Hope you did not loose too much hair doing these fantasic versions of "A Night on Bald Mountain".
