First-Finger PachelbelJohann Pachelbel/arr. R. Anne Svendsen - Latham Music
Like Pachelbel's original, this open-string and first-finger masterpiece written in D major builds in intensity and rhythmic interest throughout. All four strings are used, and technique is very elementary with no slurs and nothing more rhythmically complex than quarters and eighths. Violas are responsible for supplying C sharps with low ones on the C string (prominently marked in their part).
