Walking in the Air is the flying theme from the animated film, The Snowman. Written by Howard Blake for the film in 1982, anew version sung by Aled Jones, wasa top 5 hit in the UK in 1985. It has been a permanent fixture on Christmasplaylists ever since. This version is arranged as a duet for twoCellos.

Musicians at an intermediate level and above willfind this ideal for formal and informal Christmas performances. The rhythms arestraightforward though there are extended quaver passages at medium tempo. Theoverall performance time is around two and a half minutes. The short audio sample is from the Clarinet and Alto Saxophone version while the full length performance on the youtube link is the Clarinet duet.

Teachers will enjoy using this arrangement as a fun way to helpwith phrasing and expressive playing.
