Scenes from the Louvre for Concert Band Grade 3 – Score & Parts
by: Norman Dello Joio
Arranged by: Robert Longfield
Composer Norman Dello Joio (1913-2008) received an Emmy award for his 1965 score for the television program The Louvre. His concert band adaptation resulted in a five movement suite combining original material with themes by Renaissance composers such as Susato, Lully, and Cesti. In this arrangement for younger players, Robert Longfield skilfully truncates each movement and lessens the technical demands while carefully maintaining the essence of this masterful wind band repertoire classic.
