Eine kleine Nachtmusik : The 1st Movement -Flexible Quartet for Brass Band-
arranged by Kouichirou Oguni
Publisher：Golden Hearts Publications（ONSA）
Printing Material：color fine paper
Probably, the 1st movement of “Eine kleine Nachtmusik” is the most famous work by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756~1791).
Actually, “Eine kleine Nachtmusik” is a Serenade which is consisted by 4 movements(※1). 2nd, 3rd, and 4th movement will be transcribed in the near future.
It will be a great pressure for me that you see the wonderfulness of original works, through my transcriptions.
For this transcription, I made two orchestrations; “Flexible Quartet for Wind Ensemble” and “Flexible Quartet for Brass Band”. This is because some of my friends are playing in Wind Ensembles, and others are playing in Brass Band. Not so many, but some friends are in both, Wind Ensemble and Brass Band. Musical Notation are different each other for some instruments (On Brass Band, T.C. is world widely used, but on Wind Ensemble, B.C. is basically used in Japan). Therefore, on Brass Band orchestration, I put T.C. and B.C., together. It may be a Hint so that people who play in Wind Ensemble and who play in Brass Band can play, together.
(※1) According to the list by W. A. Mozart, originally, it seems that “Eine kleine Nachtmusik” is consisted by 5 movements. However, the score of original 2nd movement has been lost, and nowadays, performance by 4 movements is common.
