By Ludwig van Beethoven / arr. Robert Sieving
Highland String Orchestra
A bold string adaptation of this revolutionary work, this piece includes the original string parts with the essential material from the wind parts added in. Eminently playable, the second violin and viola parts remain in first position throughout. The first violin part includes some fifth position notes, usually doubled at the octave. Cellos go to fourth position and basses to sixth. Perfect for contest or festival performance!
