I've just started running the string ensemble at my school and I'm trying to organise repertoire for them. They are of mixed standards, but all fall within Grade 4/5-7 (largely intermediate range), so the music should be interesting but not hugely complex. I'm particularly interested in pieces that would introduce composers and styles to them (e.g. I'm wondering about doing Andante Festivo by Sibelius with them). Looking for string orchestra or quartet works. Any repertoire ideas greatly appreciated! smile.png

 

P.S. the music dept budget is small, so I'm a big fan of IMSLP...
