Andante tranquillo | Second Movement from Organ Sonata Opus 65 No. 3 arranged for string quintet


An intermediate level arrangement for string quintet of a movement from a Mendelssohn organ sonata. Scored for 2 violins, 2 violas and cello, individual parts for instrumentalists are appended to the full score available as a pdf download from PlentyMusic. This is the second movement from the Organ Sonata in A Opus 65 No.3 and is essentially a chorale or hymn much in keeping with the chorale of J. S. Bach although Mendelssohn’s harmonic language is chromatic rather than diatonic. There is opportunity to slow down and pause at the ends of phrases although there is only one such marking in the sheet music score. There are some octave transpositions in the flute and oboe parts. Playing chorale arrangements like this are excellent for developing ensemble playing and good intonation. A generally quiet movement, string players should be aiming for a legato in their playing. The realisation plays back at 76 quarter note (crotchet) beats to the minute. mp3 accompaniments are available playing at 72, 76 and 80 quarter note (crotchet) beats to the minute enabling violin players to participate in ensemble activities as part of their practice routines.
