Dynamic melodies and brooding ostinati fill this dynamic concert opener in C minor. From the opening vamp to the surprise ending, this exciting work features bellicose melodies, haunting viola lines, and interplay between sections.

Use this piece as an introduction to the key of C minor. Courtesy accidentals are shown for the first Eb, Bb, and Ab’s that appear. During the call-and-response sections, make sure to let that dynamic volume be much contrasting than the original theme. The tambourine part can be switched out with any other unpitched percussion instruments available, like a snare drum (or even a timpani tuned to C!). Be sure to bring out the ostinato that starts at measure 3 and continues to the end of the piece, particularly in the bass. The rolling viola part that begins at measure 5 should be brought out with power and emphasis, and should continue when the cellos pick up that line at m. 25. All countermelodies should be brought out.
