Suite no.1 for Strings



This suite consists of five dance-style movements in D major and G major and is designed for players at around Grade 1-2 who have had little, if any, previous string orchestral experience. The orchestration is for three violins, violas, cellos and double basses, with the third violin part fully independent of the viola part throughout; the double bass part is pizzicato and can be omitted. A set includes a score, 5 copies of each violin part, 3 each of the viola and cello parts and 2 copies of the double bass part. Total playing time ca. 6 minutes.
