Waltz from Masquerade Suite (intermediate arrangement)

Aram Khachaturian
Catalog numbers: 

SMC SO138FS/ HL 348233

Duration (minutes): 
Detailed Instrumentation: 
String Orchestra
The whimsical main theme, with its augmented 2nd, is perfect for teaching intervals and chromatic fingerings (the violas will play in 1/2 position). The first violins will shift to and stay in 3rd position for the 2nd theme, which the cellos and violas will share first. The middle section of the work has been omitted. A great addition to any Halloween concert for mid-level high school or community orchestra. A more advanced full transcription for string orchestra is also available from the publisher.
