Gounod: Marche Funèbre d'une Marionnette - clarinet quartet
The Funeral March of a Marionette (Marche funèbre d'une marionnette) is a short piece by Charles Gounod.
It was written in 1872 for solo piano and orchestrated in 1879.
It is perhaps best known as the theme music for the television program Alfred Hitchcock Presents, which originally aired from 1955 to 1965.
There is an optional cut to miss out the fugal bit in the middle! I have arranged this from the orchestral score: any similarities to other arrangements are coincidental!!. Arranged for clarinet quartet of 3 Bb and bass.
Fun for all the players: the tune moves round all the parts.
