Arrangements played in Family Concert

I’ve been very busy arranging lots of excerpts of famous pieces for use in a Family Concert at the Kammermusiksaal in Berlin. The violist Matthew Hunter is leading a group of his Berlin Philharmonic colleagues and a great many children in a concert based on Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s book “The Little Prince”. Pieces I’ve arranged for the seven-player ensemble include “The Entertainer”, bits of symphonies by Mozart and Shostakovich, and (the one I’m most proud of) “Mars” from Holst’s “Planets” Suite.
