The Little Person of Colour




This is an arrangement for Wind band of a short piece by Claude Debussy (1862 – 1918). It’s original title is considered unacceptable by the majority of people nowadays, hence the revised title given to this arrangement. (Original title: Le Petit Negre).

It is a mixture of syncopated rhythms and smooth melody and is arranged here for Flutes 1 & 2, Oboes 1 & 2, Clarinets in Bb 1, 2 & 3, Bassoon, Alto Saxophone 1 & 2, Tenor Saxophone, Trumpet in Bb 1 & 2, Horn in F, Tenor Horn, Trombone, Tuba, Bass Guitar, Timpani and Drum Kit.

It is a great piece to perform and goes down well with players and audiences alike. The download comprises all parts and score as PDFs and a full recording via Sibelius.
