Funeral March of a Marionette (Gounod)

The Funeral March of a Marionette (Marche funèbre d’une marionnette) is a short piece
by French composer Charles Gounod. It was written in 1872 for solo piano and orchestrated
in 1879. It is perhaps best known as the theme music for the television program Alfred
Hitchcock Presents.


This arrangement for concert band is an accurate transcription of the symphonic version.
Every section in the band will have something exciting to play. The fugue in the central
passage might represent a challenge for some young musicians.
