Johann Strauss, Jr., "the Waltz King," wrote many more popular dance pieces in addition to waltzes. He also produced 17 operettas filled with his own special brand of popular music. Here is the overture to "Die Fledermaus" ("The Revenge of the Bat") arranged for string quartet. The operetta's plot is filled with disguises and mistaken identities, all in payback for a practical joke played upon one of the characters a year earlier. This is, by far, Strauss' most beloved operetta.
Care has been taken to provide page turns at rests in all quartet parts. All parts are very similar to the full orchestra parts (with the addition of a few notes to cover the missing winds). The first violin part is quite demanding, so I have rated this as grade 7+ (professional).
If you enjoy this arrangemnent, check out other string quartet arrangements of pieces by Strauss: his Emperor Waltzes; Blue Danube Waltzes Wine, Women, and Song Waltzes; Pizzicato Polka; and others below, and at: http://stores.sibeliusmusic.com/jacklichmusic
Score Exchange has two methods of display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:
You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.
Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. Scorch generally works well if you're using a windows computer, but is currently not compatible with modern Mac computers or mobile devices.
If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
