Classic Mozart with a new twist for young musicians! This clever arrangement introduces the famous Eine kleine nachtmusik within a rock beat framework. Transporting your audience everywhere from classical to tango, this fun arrangement is a great change of pace for your concert while still exposing your students to a masterwork. An optional percussion part really lets you pull out all the stops. Highly entertaining!
The first movement of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's most popular and easily recognized work, Eine Kleine Nacht Musik, serves as the basis for this piece for string orchestra. Mozart was a master of all the popular styles of his day, and was also known for his sense of humor. It is in this spirit, and with great admiration for his genius, that this version updates his timeless Classical masterpiece. Careful attention to dynamics, articulation marks (especially syncopated accents), and balance between strings and optional percussion will aid in the performance of this work.
