Sonata Pathetique Composed by Beethoven. Arranged by Bud Caputo. For String Orchestra. Published by Highland/Etling. (Catalog # 40471, UPC: 038081454269)

Those of us old enough to remember Karl Haas and his National Public Radio show "Adventures in Good Music," will fondly remember this gorgeous piece as his opening theme music.  The second movement of Beethoven's famous piano sonata requires slurs while crossing strings, rapid switching from arco to pizzicato, evenly bowed staccato, dotted 8th/16th versus triplets, descending tritones in the melody and careful adherence to dynamics, articulations and implied phrasing to help balance the supporting and moving lines.  Your students will be better musicians from their exposure to this outstanding arrangement of this musical pearl.  On the Ohio High School Class B Adjudication list.
