Articulation Train

Level:

3

Duration:

3:10

Instrumentation:

wind band, fanfare band

concert work

Type

All aspects of articulation are addressed in this hellish train journey. The gradual acceleration not only suggests a train that is driving faster and faster, but is also intended to practise staccato playing. For a concert performance, a child or a musician can be dressed up as an engine driver and sound the train departure whistle. A real train whistle can enhance the atmosphere in certain places that have been marked for this purpose. This part can also be used as an encore piece for a concert.
