Petite ouverture – Nicolas Jarrige

Sheet music for wind orchestra

Full score and separates parts

As its name suggests, this piece is very accessible and is a great way to start your concert. A cheerful and inviting introduction sets the scene. The first part continues in a sustained rhythm with the exposition of the first theme to the clarinets and then to the whole orchestra.

A majestic minorization of this theme completes this part. The slow movement of this overture, in three beats, is similar to a minuet, distilling a great deal of quietness and bringing out the best in your orchestra’s performance. The percussion introduces the resumption of the first part, the feast resumes! A very dynamic coda concludes this piece full of joy and freshness.
