Funeral March of a Marionette

Charles Gounod
Catalog numbers: 

SMC SO79FS/ HL 3773633

Duration (minutes): 
Detailed Instrumentation: 
String Orchestra
Originally composed by Gounod for full orchestra, this arrangement for string orchestra retains the form and key (D minor and D Major) of the original.  Great care has been taken to ensure consistent articulations and bowing throughout and to making sure every instrument has an interesting part.  Students will need to develop a light style, but players should enjoy this piece, which is appropriate for concert and contest, while older memebers of the audience will recognize this melody from its use as a theme for Alfred Hitchcock's television program.
