Very faithful to the original but arranged with the younger player in mind, this setting of an orchestral staple has it all, and is sure to challenge every section of your orchestra. The lyrical opening section will develop their expressive playing and bow control, while the bustling main theme will give everyone's fingers a great technical workout. A terrific way to give your students a taste of musical history, this piece makes a perfect closer or contest selection.
