The second movement from his sixth and last symphony finds Tchaikovsky at his melodic best, arranged by Richard Meyer. This elegant “waltz” in 5/4 meter has long been a favorite of audiences and is an excellent way to introduce your students to a too often neglected time signature. The interesting instrumentation features winds and strings complementing each other as the two halves of the orchestra take turns playing the melody and accompanying. The brooding and somber Trio section will allow your students to emote in an entirely different way. Five percussion parts have been tastefully weaved into the musical tapestry. From a master of symphonic expression at the height of his abilities, this selection is sure to showcase the best your students have to offer.
