Finale from Symphony No. 5Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky/arr. Brian Holmes - Wingert-Jones Publications
The finale of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5 is a fantastic orchestral movement. It is very grand in nature and appears to reflect Tchaikovsky’s nationalist writing tendencies. The arrangement for string orchestra captures the powerful melodies originally heard in winds and brass. Beautiful melodies are introduced, building to a majestic return of the opening theme. The movement closes with a strong and exciting finale. Includes optional timpani.
