Music to download 2020

Music for 2020 (‘Town, Country and Beyond’)

There are now 4 pieces of music to download from IMSLP (three for orchestra and one for strings only), and one piece for wind ensemble which is in electronic format and all the players have downloaded it, I believe.  The other 6 pieces that we are playing in this concert will have been distributed to players at the rehearsals, by Carol, June or Pam, but please contact us if you haven’t got your music.

Links to recordings of all the pieces we will be playing can be found below at the bottom of this document, so that you can play along if you wish, or just listen.

Pieces to Download from IMSLP:

  1. Elgar: Three Bavarian Dances for orchestra

Once on this page, you will need to print your instrument’s part for the piece, which is to be found under ‘sheet music’, then click on ‘parts’ and they are listed, starting with the flutes.

If you have any problems printing your part off, please either ask your section leader for help, or ask Pam or Sian.

For those who have not downloaded from IMSLP before, there is a 15 second countdown after you click on the instrument part you wish to download.  After this delay, click on ‘click here to download’, which is near the top of the page.  You can then print off the music

  1. Holst: St Paul’s Suite (for strings only)

Scroll down to ‘Sheet Music’, click on ‘parts’, and click on the instrument that you wish to print off.  Violin 2: please note that there are 2 copies of your part available. The first version, next to the violin 1 part is clearer than the part nearer the bottom of the page.

  1. Butterworth: On the Banks of Green Willow

Sheet music, parts, select the instrument, then the pages you wish to print, as most instruments have parts 1 and 2 in the same document and you might not want all of them.

  1. Beethoven: Coriolan Overture

NB We will be using the Leipzig: Breitkopf and Hartel version, which is the second set of parts on the page.

Sheet music, parts, second set of parts, select the instrument, then the pages you wish to print.
