Written as incidental music for the complete Babar stories of Jean de Brunhoff and read by John Nettleton of the Royal Shakespeare Company, Babar the Elephant was commissioned by Tellastory (Random House) for their popular audio cassette series. This wind band arrangement, made by the composer, includes the original title music and several lively depictions of Babar’s adventures. Bedford Modern School Wind Band gave the first performance of the wind band version in 1986.
