William Tell Overture  (Andrew) Pk image
Orchestration
2 Flutes, 2 Oboes, 3 Clarinets in Bb (3rd doubles 1st Bassoon), 2 Bassoons
2 Horns in F (or Alto sax & Alto or Tenor sax), 2 Trumpets in Bb, 2 Trombones, Tuba, Timpani, Percussion (Triangle, Cymbals, Bass drum)
Strings (Violin 1, Violin 2, Violin 3, Viola, Cello, Bass)

The opening to this famous overture requires a good cello section! If your cellos are not up to dividing into 5 successfully then start at the Allegro Vivace. Rossini had two viola parts in the original; the upper viola part has been given to Violin 3 in this arrangement and the lower part becomes the main Viola part, although it will still work perfectly well without any violas at all.
Duration: 5 minutes
A PACK comprises an A4 sized full score plus a complete set of parts including strings 4/4/3/4/2.

An intellectual is someone who can listen to the William Tell Overture without thinking of the Lone Ranger . . . . . .
