Description:A rare and beautiful chart from the Glenn Miller orchestra, this chart was originally scored by Bill Finegan and is his iterpretation of Tschaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1. The arrangement is full of tonal and dynamic contrast, with a mix of raw brass energy and muted sectional playing, with some lush scoring in all the sections and of course the famous Miller reed sound with plunger Brass figures behind the reed section. The Piano has a couple of solo spots, but the chart is not a Piano feature. The Brass ranges are not too demanding, the second Alto doubles Clarinet, and Baritone doubles Alto. As with all Miller charts, precision and sectional discipline is required.
