    Default Band arrangement for Ibert Concertino

    Is it possible to obtain an arrangement of Ibert's Concertino da Camera where the accompaniment is a wind ensemble? I know Brian Sacawa and the US Army Field Band made a recording of the second movement, but even after asking Sacawa where they got that arrangement, I still can't find it.

    If there isn't any publisher that sells it, does anyone know where I can download/buy a pdf of just the orchestral score?

    I don't know about a band arrangement, but you can download the orchestral score from IMSLP.

    Try the USMA Band at West Point. I know their staff arranger did a wonderful WW choir arrangement of the accompaniment for the Glazounov. I believe they list the Ibert Concertino da Camera on their list of solos that local high school musicians can play for their annual concerto competition.

    I know I've heard of an arrangement existing, and I've even seen a listing in one rental catalog that I can't seem to find now. The best I've found is this: http://www.navyband.navy.mil/saxopho...l_artists.html listing the transcriber as Richard Raven. No info on Mr. Raven, as far as I can find, though. I'm pursuing a degree in music composition right now, and should I have some free time over winter break, I may take a crack at transcribing it myself.
    Of course a piece like this brings with it a lot of problems: the string quintet is typically multiplied in size up to at least 20 players, often more. I personally feel that the best recordings are done with one on a part, and we all know that most band programs, high school, college, or military will have multiple per part making things a bit more tricky to balance.
    Hope this was of some help.
