March, from Fidelio (violin viola duo)
Title: March, from the opera Fidelio
Composer: Ludwig van Beethoven, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Violin and Viola
Printout: 2 pages
Note: This light and spirited march is from Act I of Beethoven’s only opera, Fidelio. Curiously, it is played as the cruel prison governor and his guards enter the scene. The orchestration is fairly light, lending the music to arrangements for small ensembles.
