Can Can Carnival of Venice Finlandia Largo from Symphony No. 9
(“New World”) Morning Musette in D Major Ode to Joy Spring Symphony No. 1 in C Minor, Fourth Movement Excerpt Trumpet Voluntary
This is a beautiful neo-romantic work. A substantial piece at 20 minutes, the sonata, alternates between lyrical writing and music with a scherzo-like feel that is both lively and animated. It is written in one movement that flows extremely well with an intertwined cohesiveness between the cello and the piano. Advanced Level.
