About This Work

This arrangement of Le Basque for French horn and Full Concert Band is an ideal encore number and often performed by the virtuoso Dennis Brain. A must for aspiring Horn players. This arrangment by Geoff Kingston is also available in Bb concert.

Marin Marais was the central figure in the French school of bass-viol composers and performers that flourished during the late 17th and early 18th centuries. He spent his entire life in Paris, and the greater part of it in royal service. First appointed as Ordinaire de la Musique de la Chambre du Roi in 1685, he retained that post throughout the reign of Louis XIV and from 1715 to 1725 served under the Regency and Louis XV. His contemporaries recognized him as an outstanding performer and a composer of stature whose works for viols and the operatic stage were known beyond the boundaries of France.
