Mozart: Le nozze di Figaro (The Marriage of Figaro) Overture K492 - wind dectet
One of Mozart’s well loved pieces.
This arrangement of The Overture to the Marriage of Figaro sits well for wind dectet. I have transposed the piece from D to Eb.
I have not written this as tutti throughout, allowing the wind player somewhere to breath!. I have modified the string parts to make them more suitable for wind.
The horn parts are mostly Mozart’s,(originally horns in D, transposed to horns in Eb) with a few additions of mine. I have, as Mozart had to, written for the natural horn.
The string parts are allocated equally amongst the woodwind. Still quite a blow but playable.
Arranged for 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets in Bb, 2 horns in Eb and 2 bassoons. Enjoy.
