Funeral March of a Marionette

Funeral March of a Marionette was originally conceived by Charles Gounod (1818–1893) as a tongue-in-cheek parody of a music critic whom he had come to detest. This spirit of good-hearted fun was certainly personified by the man who later became indelibly associated with this theme—Alfred Hitchcock. Interpreted with a sly wink of the eye, this classic novelty is great fun for players and audience alike. (Source: Published Score)
