Program Notes

Scaff! is an adaptation of the famous fourth movement of the Symphonie Fantastique by Berlioz in swing style. The story of the ‘March to the Scaffold’ is a tragic one where the subject, in a depressive state over a love interest, overdoses on opium. He dreams that he has killed his beloved and after his procession to the scaffold is now witnessing his own death. This arrangement doesn’t really reflect those tragic circumstances but instead re-dresses this great tune into a toe-tapping ‘big band’ number.
