Richard Strauss - Also Sprach Zarathustra, Introduction
Also sprach Zarathustra, Op. 30 (Thus Spoke Zarathustra) is a tone poem by Richard Strauss, composed in 1896 and inspired by Friedrich Nietzsche's philosophical treatise of the same name. The composer conducted its first performance on 27 November 1896 in Frankfurt.
The work has been part of the classical repertoire since its first performance in 1896. The initial fanfare – entitled "Sunrise" in the composer's program notes – became particularly well known to the general public due to its use in Stanley Kubrick's 1968 film "2001: A Space Odyssey".
Brahms - Symphony no. 4, Fourth Movement (mes. 1-57; First Theme)
The Symphony No. 4 in E minor, Op. 98 is Johannes Brahms' last symphony. The work was given its premiere in Meiningen on October 25, 1885 with Brahms himself conducting. The symphony is rich in allusions, mostly to various Beethoven compositions.
Debussy - Arabesque no. 1
Composed between the years 1888 and 1891 (when Debussy was in his twenties), the arabesques are perfect examples of very early impressionistic pieces for piano. We are happy to provide teachers with an extremely colorful orchestration by Denys Bouliane of Debussy's first Arabesque. Supplemental material include a complete piano version for students to orchestrate as well as scores for piano reduction assignments.
OrchPlay now includes a total of 4 orchestrations of Debussy's piano pieces (exclusive for teachers). The other pieces by Debussy for which we provide orchestrations are the Suite bergamasque I and IV (also by Bouliane) as well as Children's Corner I Gradus (by Caplet).
