March of the Guards
Arranged by Andrew Glover
Beethoven’s “March of the Guards” from the opera “Fidelio” has been adapted for flexible-instrumentation bands by Andrew Glover. This stately processional march maintains an air of dignity and solemnity throughout, and adapts well to the five-part “Build-A-Band” instrumentation. Careful scoring and minimal percussion requirements make this an excellent choice for very small ensembles, or those with awkward instrumentations. An excellent choice!
