Laurent Menagers Fantasy for violin released in different versions.

This is an important publication, as Laurent Menagers Fantasy for violin is published in the original version for violin and symphonic orchestra, for violin and piano, in the transcription by Fernand Mertens for clarinet and symphonic wind band, and finally for clarinet and piano.

Fernand Mertens was conductor of the Musique militaire grand-ducale from 1909 to 1937. His transcription for clarinet and symphonic wind band (1949) is still part of a widespread tradition of yesteryear to transcribe interesting works of the musical repertoire in order to make them more popular.

Piano reductions have been realised by Claude Kraus.
