A Little Gipsy Symphony…slightly punk

Grade 5, appr. 17′




This piece was originally written for JOSEM, the famous French youth Symphony Orchestra based near Bordeaux. Bart Picqueur worked together with this joyful gang of young musicians and their conductor Nicolas Lescombes at various occasions. The Symphony depicts 3 scenes from the festival ‘Musicalarue’ Luxey, France.

The musical style is influenced by Bulgarian folk music, with, as the title suggests a touch of punk…

Bart Picqueur reorchestrated the entire symphony for wind orchestra. Both versions are available…

Despite the many technical challenges, the piece is a lot of fun to play.
