Bowie March is a quick (120bpm) march. It should be played in a very lifted, marcato style through out. Limted syncopation in melody and accompaniment give it a energetic, moving, bouncy motion.
Major key of Eb in A section - B section in F minor. Instrumentation contains WW - Fl, Ob, Bsn, Clar(2), BC, AS(2), Ts, Bs. BRASS - Tr(2), Hn(2), Tb(2), Eu, Tu. PERC - Bells, SD, BD, Tamb & Cymbal. Though many parts are split, they are rhythmically unison and often pitch unison. They help mostly with range.
