Scherzo (from Sixth Symphony) (Flute Choir)
ScherzoFrom Symphony No.6
Ludwig Van Beethoven
Arranged by Anthony McDonald
Score and Part(s)
Performing Ensemble: Flute Ensemble
Instrumentation: Piccolo, 4 C Flutes, Alto Flute, Bass Flute, Contrabass Flute. Part of a rare programmatic work by Beethoven, the "Scherzo" from his sixth symphony is meant to evoke a festive gathering of peasants. In the original symphony, this movement does not have a clear ending, giving away to an attacca into the next. Anthony McDonald has employed the last five measures from the scherzo to Beethoven's Symphony No. 7 to serve as the ending in this edition. Joyous and quick, this piece will be a delight for audiences and players alike. For intermediate to advanced players.
