String Orchestra Conductor Score & Parts
Mvt. I. Bransle / Mvt. II. Sarabande / Mvt. III. Bourée
This suite by Douglas E. Wagner for young string players is drawn from Terpsichore, a major compilation of 312 primarily French dance tunes published in 1612, compiled and arranged by Michael Praetorius. Three contrasting movements, "Bransle," "Sarabande," and "La Bourée," present a balanced and musically satisfying concert or contest selection, in addition to opening up a multitude of teachable moments in the rehearsal room.
