This famous "Nocturne," which evokes the magic slumbers of Shakespeare's main characters in the forest, will provide a chance to develop a beautiful, legato playing style. Winds are featured in several spots, and the strings use legato hooked bowings throughout. A great "change of pace" piece that will showcase your orchestra's sensitivity and musicality!
