This popular piano solo has now been adapted for the concert band. It is a character piece depicting the mysterious nature of gypsies on their travels. The mysteriousness of the work makes it an excellent choice for a concert band around Halloween time. All sections of the band play a portion of the melody but none are too difficult. There are huge dynamic contrasts and contrasting melodic material that keep this short piece interesting and unique.
