Full set. score and parts. also available. ST6193. Grade 2. Score only. Duration 3 minutes, 30 seconds. Published by The FJH Music Company Inc. FJ.ST6193S. Finally, a fantastic arrangement of Tchaikovsky's masterwork that includes themes from the entire work, not just the ending. Gruselle follows the form of the original while keeping the work quite accessible for younger players. Themes include the opening. Tchaikovsky wrote this festival overture to commemorate the Russian Army's struggle against Napoleon's forces. The themes that are presented in this arrangement include an opening hymn, a pastoral interlude, a Russian folk dance, and a jubilant victory melody set over an exultant Russian anthem. Set in accessible keys with rhythms modified for young musicians, students focus on tone, dynamics, articulations, and the occasional accidental. Slightly more advanced than Beginning Strings, this series begins to involve more position work and a slightly more complex rhythmic figures. Rehearsal piano is often provided. Ideal for middle school and smaller high school programs. Grade 2 - 2.5.
