Quick Overview

These timeless melodies from Alexander Borodin have been lifted from the original score, arranged for strings, and transposed into the friendlier key of G Major. This piece poses a challenge suitable for advanced middle school orchestras, or a good exercise in melodic shaping and tone production for an intermediate high school group. Major teaching features include triplets, syncopation, ornaments, 16th note rhythms, and slurs. Polovtsian Dances provides a beautiful concert selection for any time of the year.
