(for Piano and String Orchestra)Various Composers/arr. Caputo - Wingert-Jones Publications
A piano concerto in a student orchestra concert? A string quartet in a piano recital? Absolutely, with this fine collection of four piano solos taken from the standard piano repertoire and orchestrated with string accompaniments. Here is your chance to shine the spotlight on a young pianist or your string orchestra accompanist with style. Piano solos have been kept intact and colorized with classical-sounding accompaniments so that the soloist can merely play along with the orchestra. Lyric counter-melodies and delicate pizzicati bring out the best in the arrangements, and in your players. Includes: Spinning Song (Ellmenreich); Sonatina (Clementi); Minuet in G (Beethoven) and Musette (J.S. Bach).
