Product Description

The Adagio Cantabile from Beethoven's Piano Sonata No. 8, Opus 13 "Pathetique" has been arranged for String Orchestra by Joseph I. Corporon.

The hauntingly beautiful opening theme is played by the Violas with accompaniment by Cello and Bass. When the melody is restated it is doubled in Violin 1 and Violin 2 joins the accompaniment. The equally sonorous second theme is played by Violin 2. Each instrument has a substantial part to play in this excellent adaption of the Beethoven sonata. The arrangement remains in the original key of Ab Major.

This arrangement is dedicated to Dr. Michael Rickman, Professor Emeritus at Stetson University in DeLand, Florida. Dr. Rickman and Joseph Corporon have been personal friends and performing colleagues with The Daytona Solisti Chamber Players since 2005. Dr. Rickman is a Steinway Artist.
