Product Details


Tongue-in-cheek and beautiful, Bottom of the Ninths is the perfect way to delve into these masterworks with young players in a fun context! All sections remain in 1st position, in the key of D major, with no high 3's or low 1's as the melodies are passed throughout the orchestra. Easy to play and showcasing the beauty of these great composers, this piece, arranged by Bob Phillips, would shine at a festival or contest. The medley features "Take Me Out to the Ball Game;" the opening theme from Schubert's Symphony No. 9 which is, of course, at the beginning of that work; the famous "Going Home" theme from the middle of Dvorák's Symphony No. 9; and the "Ode to Joy" theme from Beethoven's Symphony No. 9, which is at the end, or the "bottom," of the 9th.
