I was inspired to create this suite after the horrendousParis attacks in 2015, to show our solidarity with French, and love for theirmusic. I originally made an arrangement for string orchestra designed to beplayed by groups on different ability levels. This arrangement for two violas  is intended for very advanced students,skilled amateurs, or professionals. I have not included any fingerings so as toleave this to the artistic choice of each performer. The arrangement includesseven selections: Bizet’s Carmen and L'Arésienne, Alouette, Frère Jacques,Offenbach’s Can-Can, Debussy’s Clair de Lune and La Marseillaise (FrenchNational Anthem) by Claude Joseph Rouget de Lisle. There are also brief quotesfrom Mahler's Symphony No. 1, Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique, and Schumann'sTwo Grenadiers. The entire suite is approximately eight minutes in length.Score and parts are included.
