In Stock. From the composer of The Planets comes this beloved Christmas carol. Voted the best carol in a 2008 BBC Music Magazine poll of some of the world's leading music directors, this lesser-known carol is a touching and beautiful work by one of England's greatest composers. This lush setting for string orchestra features all sections of the orchestra in the presentation of this gorgeous tune, and will be a memorable addition to any holiday program. This title is available in SmartMusic.
This Haydn quartet movement is a powerful example of the "Storm and Stress" style (Sturm und Drang) favored by the composer in many of his famous symphonies. Set in the dark key of D minor, rhythmic and harmonic agitation propel the music forward as Haydn develops its four-note theme through a variety of methods. Both musicians and audience will be captivated by this chamber music masterpiece set for string orchestra with an added bass part to strengthen its harmonic movement, making this the perfect concert or contest closer for your orchestra.
