Butterflies on the Breeze for String Orchestra (Grade 1)
Item Number: #
This piece depicts the magic of butterfly migration with only open strings and first finger (using all strings). The butterflies disappear into the sky with a soft, delicate pizzicato ending. Bowing skills include two-note slurs, staccato on the string, and hooked bowings. While rhythmically simple, this piece incorporates a great mix of note values, making counting accuracy important. Number of parts: 8-vln1, 8-vln2, 2-vln3, 5-vla, 5-cello, 3-bass, score. Grade 1.
