Figaro's Revelry - The morning after the night before ... based on The Marriage of Figaro Overture

Figaro’s Revelry is a light-hearted swing arrangement for saxophone quartet based on Mozart's "The Marriage of Figaro Overture."

 

The music depicts the morning after the night before reflecting on the wedding party's drunken revelry. It starts subtone as if waking early in the morning with, perhaps, a hangover. It goes on to reminisce about the rest of the evening's tomfoolery, drunken swaying and general shenanigans.

Please note that further saxophone quartets and a piano accompanied solo saxophone solo book are available on the Warwick Music Publications page.
