Fanfare pour précéder La Péri

Paul Dukas, arranged by Johan de Meij
 
 

The original music to La Péri was written in 1911 by Paul Dukas as a Poème dansé en un tableau ("dance poem in one scene"), his last published work. Although not as well known as his famous symphonic poem L'apprenti sorcier, the ballet has been considered to be one of his most mature and skilled pieces.
The music's style can best be described as a mixture of Romantic tonal harmony and orchestration techniques with Impressionism, and is distinctly French.The ballet itself is preceded by a brilliant fanfare that uses the orchestra's brass section, and which is often performed separately.
