Petite Suite de Concert No. 1 Le Caprice de Nannette

Samuel Coleridge-Taylor



Product Description

Petite Suite de Concert was composed in 1911 and is one of the composer’s lighter works. Cast into four contrasting movements, the suite is very appealing and showcases Coleridge-Taylor’s memorable melody writing. It is said to be in a style somewhere between Edward Elgar and Arthur Sullivan, a delightful example of British Light Music. The opening movement, a playful caprice, sets the scene for the rest of the suite. The arrangement is exciting, with much full ensemble playing. A reprise of the main theme of this movement leads into the poignant coda section that sees the opening movement conclude in a thrilling manner.
