Title: The World Sleeps, op. 17 no. 10
Composer: Sergei Tanayev, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Violin 1; Violin 2; Viola; Cello
Printout: 8 pages
Note: The rich post-romantic harmonies in this nocturne are almost jazz-like in character. Don’t sight read this at a gig – it’s very chromatic, but worth the extra practice and rehearsal time.
