This is one of my favorite pieces and I wanted to see if I could bring it to life in four parts for Cello Choir and still maintain its wonderful character. These four movements are the result. The paraphrased blurp below about the original was taken from a web page by Geoff Kuenning (www.lasr.cs.ucla.edu/geoff/prognotes/tchaikovsky/stringSerenade.html � 2000, Geoff Kuenning )

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, 1840-1893. Serenade in C Major for String Orchestra, Op.48. Completed November, 1880, first performance October 30, 1881, in St.Petersburg. Scored for string orchestra. A note in the score admonishes: "The larger the string orchestra, the better will the composer's desires be fulfilled.'' Completing it despite persistent headaches, he wrote to his publisher that he had "unexpectedly'' composed a serenade, and added, "Whether because it is my latest child or because in reality it is not bad, I am terribly in love with this serenade, and can scarcely wait to have it presented to the world.'' The premiere was a great success, however, with the audience demanding a repetition of the Waltz.
