PXT008 Valse (Serenade for String Orchestra, Op. 48) - Tchaikovsky, P.I.


*Finalist, NFA Newly Published Music Competition
Perhaps the most well known movement of the Serenade for String Orchestra, this is a Valse full of contrasts, from the dolce main theme to busier minor key sections with quaver figures passing between the players. This is a really enjoyable and useful addition to the Wind Quintet repertoire.
