Overture to King Arthur

Arranged by Carrie Lane Gruselle
Grade: 3



From 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! (2:40)
