Composed by Various. Arranged by Mark W. Huxhold. Romantic Period, Repertoire, Graduation. Individual Part. 4 pages. Published by Mark Wayne Music, LLC (S0.424663).

Item Number: S0.424663

This piece was arranged to provide pre-procession background music for a large commencement ceremony. The pieces used in this medley are all of a stately or majestic style and include in order:

Promenade from Pictures at an Exhibition by Mussorgsky

Jupiter from The Planets by Holst

Finale from Symphony No. 1 by Brahms

Academic Festival Overture by Brahms

The Great Great of Kiev from Pictures at an Exhibition by Mussorgsky

The arrangement is flexible:

The cello part in Jupiter is for advanced players and is in tenor clef. The player has a choice between a clean part, a part with suggested fingerings, or a simplified part which substitutes the bass part in the Jupiter section.

Because there are no elaborate transitions or cadences connecting the pieces, selections may be omitted to suit individual situations without compromising musical integrity.

Length: 197 measures

Performance time approximately 7:57
