Be Gone, Bumblebee

A new take on a classic – apropos for the time of year.

It’s been arranged for every instrument imaginable, and used by a myriad of musicians of classical to jazz to pop to heavy metal persuasion. It has shown up in radio shows and movies – Fantasia (Disney) and Shine and Drumline. It’s a great piece for teaching breathing and agility to wind and brass students, and has been performed in the record time of 53 seconds by Canadian violinist Eric Speed at the Montreal Just for Laughs festival.

It’s one of those “classical” pieces that most “classical” musicians have heard a few too many times. I kind of like this version :)
