Swan Lake Fantasie

“A crazy piece!”
This is not simply an arrangement of the big tunes from Swan Lake but a substantial piece of some considerable difficulty. The violin and cello solos from the White Swan are transcribed while the Dance of the Little Swans is arranged to capture as much of the orchestra as possible. Add in the odd cadenza for one or other flute and some piano (or harp) flourishes and you have a really crazy piece. I have bought this myself!
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
