Overture for Winds, Op. 24By Felix Mendelssohn / arr. John Boyd Grade: 4 Item: 36-10100201
Written for eleven winds when Mendelssohn was fifteen years old, it has been set for contemporary wind band (the saxophone parts are optional, staying with a desire for historical accuracy to the extent feasible), this is a shining jewel of music. With care towards balance, articulation, and musicality, this is a solid repertoire piece for advanced groups. This edition also preserves the instrumentation of the 1826 autograph should the conductor choose to reduce the number of players to the original eleven winds. A terrific recording is available on Kosei KOCD 31993566.
