Andante Festivo is one of the most popular orchestral works by Jean Sibelius (1865¬–1957). The base for this the transcription for saxophone quartet has been the string quartet version, first published in the mid-1990s. Idiomatic adjustments have been made. These are mostly connected to the continuation of the phrases. The double stops of the violin and cello parts are rearranged in a manner more suitable for saxophones, honouring the original texture. The work is a slow and solemn work, suitable for beginners and professionals alike. It works well as a concert encore, or in an occasion when tranquil music is needed.

Andante Festivo on yksi Sibeliuksen suosituimmista orkesteriteoksista. Tämän saksofonikvartettisovituksen pohjana on ollut teoksen alkuperäinen versio jousikvartetille, joka julkaistiin ensimmäisen kerran vasta 1990-luvulla. Sovitus sopii niin vasta-alkajille kuin pidemmälle ehtineillekin. Se sopii hyvin konserttiin tai juhlallisen tilaisuuden seremoniamusiikiksi.
