Ten percussionists and a drum solo included

20 years ago I was asked by percussionist Brian Stone to arrange The Sorcerer’s Apprentice (Paul Dukas) for his Percussion Unlimited group. Took some time and inspiration to get the final arrangement sounding as I wanted the music to and respect the composition. This arrangement has long been on my list of ensembles to make available as a download and now it is done: https://payhip.com/b/lX7S
A few years ago I was sent a recording of the arrangement performed by the University of Huddersfield Percussion Ensemble, directed by Chris Bradley, the first time I had heard it performed and it sounded happy. Glad of that. I put an extract on my SoundCloud page https://soundcloud.com/music-54-4/the-sorcerers-apprentice-excerpt-1-f-to-i
Have a look and have a listen. Thank you.
