March of a Marionette for Bassoon and Piano
From the Publisher
Charles Gounod’s March of a Marionette is a popular piece composed in 1872. It is a mock funeral march with a jaunty and light-hearted tune and inappropriate rhythms which create a humorous and carefree characteror mood. It was adopted by film director Alfred Hitchcock in the 1950s as a theme for his television programme and as such is now closely associated with him.
This version is for Bassoon with Piano accompaniment,arranged by Harold Walters.
