My orchestration from the Choudens piano score of this waltz by Oscar Fetras.

I expect you’ll love it or hate it. I really enjoyed doing it though. Some of it works really well. Some of it only works if you have a burning desire to see how the March of the Toreadors sounds in 3/4 time.

Of course, having spent a couple of days on this my brain is full of famous tunes in the wrong metre. Anyway, I have “fixed” a couple of harmonies that just sounded completely wrong and made no sense musically. I hope they’re right now.
