Arrangements and transcriptions

  • Erlkönig (Erl King) - Franz Schubert

    transcribed for concert band by Fran Griffin

    Franz Schubert's Erlkönig (Erl King) is one of the most terrifying pieces of music to come out of the early 19th Century. It is a song with piano set to a poem by Göthe, depicting a father's desperate ride through the night with his dying son. The son is being taunted by the utterly malevolent Erl King, but the father cannot hear this and tries in vain to keep his son calm. The son's distress increases as the Erl King comes closer and closer, finally claiming the son's life before the father can get him to safety. This is an exciting work that any good student or community band will enjoy.
