This arrangement is an orchestra driven piece. It features the brass section throughout in a majestic sort of way.
You don’t have to have a rhythm section to play this piece. A simple snare drum would do the trick to keep the drive going. But even if you don’t have a snare drum/drummer, as long as you have a piano player, they can play the written out piano part and you are good to go!
As true to the entire series, this arrangement features playable, easy to read rhythms for all sections.
