by Ludwig van Beethoven; arr. Alan Miller

Medium/AdvancedConcert Percussion

8 Players

Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 8 remains one of his most popular compositions and is commonly known as the Pathétique Sonata. Alan Miller's arrangement for percussion ensemble draws its content from Beethoven's first movement. Arranged for eight players on mostly pitched percussion instruments, Pathétique is an active and colorfully orchestrated piece that highlights the dexterity of the performers, transforming the original piano work to percussion ensemble with particular musical ingenuity.
