Beethovens Fifth Symphony is one of the most recognizable pieces of music ever written. With numerous appearances in popular culture including movies, television, rock and disco, it stands alone as the most popular of Beethovens nine symphonies. This special treat will enable musicians of all ages to experience the genius of Beethovens most significant work as a solo or any assorted instrumental combination as this piece is arranged for Trumpet, Clarinet, Alto Sax, Trombone & Flute or Violin in accommodating keys with piano accompaniment. This famous Beethoven classic is a great addition to our ever strong instrumental solo library. Beethovens Fifth was first performed in Vienna in 1808, but was not initially recognized as an innovative piece of music. This was mostly due to poor conditions at this 1st performance that included a frigid-cold theater and a poorly prepared orchestra. Even though the debut left critics with mixed opinions, people soon realized it was unlike anything they had heard before. Robert Schumann, a German composer and influential music critic, wrote; this symphony invariably wields its power over men of every age like those great phenomena of nature. This symphony, too, will be heard in future centuries, nay, as long as music and the world exist.

The sonatas by Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741) are without doubt among the best compositions for violoncello and basso continuo created in the baroque era. Of these works, it is the Sonata in E minor (RV 40) which enjoys particular popularity. This is why it has been taken from the edition of the six sonatas (ED 4927), published by Walter Kolneder, and is now presented by Schott in a separate edition. Now, even the cellist who does not want to purchase the complete edition can enjoy the wealth and beauty of Vivaldi's art of composition.
