On a tour of America in 1833 and 1834, the Franco/Flemish violin virtuoso Henri Vieuxtemps heard Yankee Doodle. On returning to Europe, he produced the violin and piano barnburner that was the inspiration for this string orchestra arrangement. Everyone in the orchestra gets a crack at the melody and some alternate notes are provided for those with acrophobia. This is a must-have for those who enjoy programming patriotic music where the fireworks are in the string parts. (3:20).
