Two Movements from Seven Characteristic Pieces, Op. 7
By Felix Mendelssohn / arr. Steven H. Brook
Belwin Concert String Orchestra
Explore the riches of Mendelssohn in this arrangement of two piano works dating from his teenage years. The first offers an opportunity for beautifully lyrical playing. The second is a brilliantly constructed fugue that builds to an electrifying conclusion. It will take your students out of the textbook, and engage them in augmentation, diminution, inversion, stretto, and pedal tones.
