String orchestra (88555) with optional 3rd violin/viola TC (3) and piano - Grade 2.5-3
Composed by Bedrich Smetana (1824-1884). Arranged by Robert Frost. Cadet String Orchestra Series. Score and set of parts. Duration 4 minutes, 25 seconds. Published by Kendor Music Inc (KN.9560).

Item Number: KN.9560

Scored in the keys of E minor, G major and E major, this contest-worthy adaptation presents three themes -- The River, Peasant Wedding, The River At Its Widest Point -- from Smetana's 19th-century symphonic portrait of the Vltava (Moldau in German) River which runs through the Bohemian countryside. The first and last portions are set in a dramatic, flowing 6/8 meter, while the energetic wedding dance is in 2/4 time. Everyone plays a prominent role in this sophisticated concert presentation. Duration 4:25.
