Henry Purcell's semi-opera King Arthur
comes this wonderful arrangement in the style
of the French Overture. The piece begins with
a strong statement filled with regal and stately
dotted rhythms. A lively fugue follows in
which all sections play an equal role as they
explore independent playing. Written in the
key of D minor, shifting is required for first
violin and bass while cello uses extensions.
An excellent study in Baroque bow style!
