Chorus from Opera “Tolomeo”
by George Frideric Handel/Arr. E. Goldman
This lively chorus tune from Handel’s opera Tolomeo is a perfect way to introduce beginning string players to Baroque music. Featuring an ornate melody in the first violin part, well-defined phrases, rhythmic diversity, and dynamical changes throughout the piece, this arrangement provides challenges for every section of the orchestra. In addition to the piece, the set includes supplementary scales, arpeggios, and exercises for mastering the material. Very easy. Available in print or digital format.
