Dances of Dido: Fear No Danger and Come Away for String Orchestra (Grade 2)
Ed Zunic has arranged this elegant piece by Henry Purcell for intermediate orchestra. The harmony parts play some chromatic figures (allowing for the introduction of extensions), and dotted rhythms allow the use of hooked bowings. This new arrangement is a lovely way to teach Baroque style to young students. Number of parts: 8-vln1, 8-vln2, 5-vla, 5-cello, 3-bass, score. Grade 2.
