Dance of the Jesters, from The Snow Maiden – Rimsky-Korsakov (violin viola duo)
Title: Dance of the Jesters, from the opera The Snow Maiden
Composer: Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Violin; Viola
Printout: 4 pages
Note: This rollicking music is perfect for celebratory events or light concert use. It is challenging to play, but worth the trouble. Rimsky-Korsakov’s opera is not to be mistaken for Tchaikovsky’s incidental music for the stage play of the same name.
