After arranging many of the movements as a set, from Mussorgsky’s incredible ’Pictures at an Exhibition’, I’ve now started to make these available individually.

Il Vecchio Castello is perhaps one of the more famous of these movements from the original work. In Ravel’s famous orchestration, the saxophone takes the solo for this movement - a rare occurrence in orchestral works - and so this piece holds an important and interesting role for the saxophonist, now accompanied in this arrangement by a whole host of instruments from his own family!

A lyrical yet mournful melody very suitable for performance without any other movements from the original work.
