A Whole New World is a ballad sung by Aladdin and Jasmine, the main characters from Disney's 1992 animated film. The music is by Alan Menken and lyrics by Tim Rice. They sing about the new world they are going to discover together while riding on Aladdin's magic carpet, so this is a big hit as a wedding quartet! The quartet I work with recorded this recently and this new arrangement is hot off the press. You can find lots of my arrangements by typing Skinny Black Dogs, Capriccio Quartet, into Youtube. My arrangement lasts 2:48 and begins in D major, an easy key for strings, changing to F major halfway through. Feel free to change the pizzicato to arco, and vice versa, depending on the setting. At bar 11/12 the viola needs to be very light, or could also be played pizzicato. It just needs to maintain the rhythmic drive at that point. My guess is that players of Grade 5 ABRSM could tackle this, though as usual, the first violin may need to be a higher grade. Make sure the tune is always heard and have fun! I can be contacted on Facebook if you need to ask me anything.
