STEALING APPLES


"Stealing Apples" is an old swing-tune written by Fats Waller. Performances by Benny Goodman and his big band made the song very popular.

In this arrangement for concert band, the mallet percussion is very essential. Mallet Percussion presents the melody from letter A and is also featured as soli-instruments from letter L to P. These parts can alternatively be played as vibraphone solo.
Please be aware of the balance at letter A. Trombones (euph.) must play piano but well articulated. Letter D must sound sparkling and fresh with articulated and powerful trumpets, F-horns and trombones (using straight-mute).
Make shue that the 8th-notes are not played too dotted two bars before letter G. Almost even 8th-notes accentuated on the start of the slur is a good tip.
Watch the balance at letter H. This part have to sound homogeniously.
The soloistic Clarinet at letter P must be played in the style of Benny Goodan. The accompaniment must not be too powerful from letter R to S.
