Program Notes

Arranged by Daniel Mitchell for xylophone solo(s) and band, this version of Dmitri Kabalevsky's Galop from The Comedians is an exciting feature that spotlights one or more keyboard percussionists in front of the band.

- Program Note from publisher

The Comedians, Op. 26, is an orchestral suite of ten numbers by Dmitry Kabalevsky. It is one of his best-known and best-loved works.

In particular, the Comedians' Galop (No. 2) is the single most famous piece of music he ever wrote. It has the same recognition factor as an easily accessible work by a Soviet composer as the Sabre Dance from Aram Khachaturian's ballet Gayane (1942).
