Originally written for piano by Dmitri Kabalevsky, here is a marvelous collection of settings for band in contrasting styles. “Dance” is written in a moderate tempo and features a trumpet melody and active percussion writing. “A Little Song” is in a slower cantabile style, with haunting harmonies and lovely melodic lines. Finally, “The Horseman” is up-tempo and rhythmic, with a definite Russian flavor. Quality music for young players!
