Theme From The 1812 Overture Composed by Tchaikovsky. Arranged by Michael Story. For String Orchestra. Published by Alfred Publishing Co Inc. (Catalog # 38405, UPC: 038081437361)

A very playable reduction of Tchaikovsky's great masterpiece, probably one of the most widely recognizable works in all of music. Written in 1880 to commemorate the Russian victory over Napoleon's army in 1812, it is strong and stately and is often played at occasions that celebrate any military victory. This version, while very playable, includes Tchaikovsky's signature chromatic accidentals, scaler and arpeggiated eighth notes and crisp, staccato bowing. New Ohio MEA H.S. Class C/M.S. Class A String Orchestra for 2013.
