Richard Wagner: Ride Of The Valkyries: Mark Williams: Concert Band

Score and Parts | Sheet Music & Songbooks
Composer Richard Wagner
Arranger Mark Williams
Publisher Alfred Music Publications
Instrumentation Concert Band
The 'Ride Of The Valkyries' is a segment from Richard Wagner's opera The Valkyrie, although the theme threads through the entire epic four-opera cycle The Ring of the Nibelungs which premiered in 1876. 'The Ride Of The Valkyries' represents the night ride of the warrior maidens, daughters of the god Wotan.

This work presents an ideal opportunity to build brass range and endurance in a non-threatening environment (unisons/octaves, bugling without change of fingering or slide position). Tempos should be carefully chosen to maintain the stormy atmosphere, without making the heroic theme sound rushed. The original score contained complex dotted 9/8 rhythms, which were converted into 3/4 rhythms to make the music easily playable by students. This was done with the utmost care in order to maintain the integrity of the music. Now your students can enjoy one of the great masterworks by one of the greatest European composers.
