- with bassoon solo and with cor anglais solo, in addition to the original saxophone version.
As mentioned in an earlier article, this is an orchestral extravaganza reminiscent of Scottish bagpipes (the drone being carried by the violas and cellos and the chanter by the soloist while the flutes and the other string parts come into the blend with arco and pizzicato passages, with the timpanis providing an exciting background).
The videos, scores, parts and audio files of all three performances - and also a Karaoke version - can be found through
