The opening measures of Strings Meet the Masters (Symphony No. 5 by Beethoven) have been simplified for young string players by:

  1. Replacing the fermatas with measured pauses.
  2. Giving two and a half beats rest before the opening note to make an easier count-off.
If the optional timpani part is used, note that the pitches change at m.37 where the 1812 Overture begins. If timpani are not used, another type of cannon-shot sound effect will be required beginning at m.49. A bass drum will do nicely, or the director may wish to investigate extremely realistic cannon sound effects produced by a synthesizer. Performance time is approximately three minutes. That you for choosing this arrangement. It is also available for band under the title Meet the Masters, catalogue number FPS35. Your comments are always most welcome. Joseph Compello Glen Arm, Maryland, 2004.
