The opening of Also Sprach Zarathustra became well-known following its use in the Stanley Kubrick film "2001: A Space Odyssey" when portraying the dawn of Mankind. It makes a spectacular opening "fanfare" for any occasion. This edition is in the original orchestration with a typically large Strauss orchestra which is used in the remainder of the tone poem, but many of the instruments can be omitted for this opening Sunrise (as indicated above, plus others that have only a few notes) so it can be performed by a standard sized orchestra.

A PACK includes a full score and complete set of parts including strings 4/4/3/4/2.
Duration 2 minutes
