La Rejouissance from the Musik for the Royal Frieworks
George Frideric HANDEL arr. JACKSON
This arrangement is designed to be playable by an orchestra which does not necessarily have three trumpeters with D instruments and three virtuoso horn players. It retains the bright and brassy tone of the original, but distributes some of the very high notes amongst the added woodwind.
Instrumentation: Flute, Piccolo, 2 Oboes, 2 Bb Clarinets, Bass Clarinet (optional), Bassoon, 2 Horns in F, 2 Trumpets in Bb, Trombone, Alto Saxophone (optional), Percussion (Timpani), Strings.
