Suite no.2 for Strings



This Suite consists of four movements with melodies in the style of those from four Eastern European countries, and explores D minor as well as major keys similar to the First Suite for Strings and is designed for players at around Grade 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. 5 minutes.
